PVCC celebrates 40th anniversary

The school has grown beyond its main campus in Albemarle County, recently opening the PVCC Eugene Giuseppe Center in Greene County. The college also is part of the Jefferson School City Center scheduled to open late this year in downtown Charlottesville.

In celebration of the college’s 40th Anniversary, PVCC has developed a new Web site at pvcc.edu/40. The site highlights milestones in the college’s history with a historical timeline and photos from years past.

Some facts about PVCC:

Since 1972, PVCC has awarded more than 10,700 associate degrees and certificates.

The class of 2012 numbered 593 students, the largest graduating class ever.

PVCC offered its first online class in 2000. Today (fall semester 2012) there are more than 230 credit and noncredit online classes.

Enrollment in 2011-12 credit classes totaled 7,887 for the year, the highest in the college’s history.

There are 39 academic programs and nearly 900 credit classes offered this fall.

As part of the 40th anniversary, an Alumni Afterhours is set for Friday, Oct. 19, from 5 until 7 p.m. in the Main Building at 501 College Drive in Charlottesville. Hosted by retired faculty members Evelyn Edson, Pryor Hale and Dick Harrington, the event is open to alumni (graduates and non-graduates) of the College. It will feature live music by current student Eli Cook and Lock Jaw, a band of local dentists including PVCC alumnus J.C. Wolfe. Registration for the event is available at pvcc.edu/40.

The PVCC Development Office has launched a $40-4-40 fund drive. This online giving opportunity asks alumni, current students and friends of PVCC for one dollar for every year the college has been in existence. Visit pvcc.edu/40 for details. – Source: PVCC
