Encouraging Students to Learn with us this Winter Break

In every team and department at Northwest Vista College, there are always great stories to tell that show faculty and staff going above and beyond.

While it’s hard to capture every story, we hope to periodically share in this space some of the major accomplishments or projects that are taking place. Members of the executive team will write about important topics that they feel NVC employees should be made aware of.

Let us know about the positive things your area is doing to help students or improve processes by contacting myself or NVC Marketing & Strategic Communications.

A Message to Share with Students to Learn with us this Winter: 

For many of us, the holiday season is just around the corner. Some people don’t celebrate the holidays, but they still enjoy time with friends or family members. Or, they may just relax between the fall and spring semesters. Others would like to spend their time productively and may revisit or create new goals. People looking to be productive should consider taking a course for college credit at Northwest Vista College this winter break.

Northwest Vista College knows students need flexibility and choices in completing their degree or in gaining new knowledge and skills. That’s why we now offer courses during the winter break that last only 3 weeks. We are offering 19 different courses across the arts, sciences, and social sciences. Taking a winter course offers several advantages. You can gain college credit in a short period of time. You can get ahead in pursuit of a degree and focus on one class. You may take a class just because the subject is interesting, and the material will be presented in an organized way. Consider also engaging with interesting people to discuss art appreciation, history, literature, composition, communication, nutrition, criminal justice, chemistry, physics, nutrition, psychology, or political science.
