June 29, 2017 | NVC PR | Leave a comment This summer marks the first time in Northwest Vista College history that a class is being taught at 6 a.m. When it’s still dark outside, students are heading to Gary Bowling’s History class for an upbeat lecture and coffee. Typically NVC offers classes at 6:30 am for those early-bird students, but this is the first time one is being offered at 6 am. Gary said because the class is on a condensed schedule during the summer, it was crucial they start it earlier than usual. In spite of the early hour, Gary said he has a full class of 23 students.
