Columbia College Hopes To Better Understand Oakdale Community
Oakdale, Ca — Columbia College is looking to increase its presence in Oakdale, and a meeting will be held next week to learn what the community is looking for from the institution.
For the past two year´s, Columbia has offered around a dozen classes each semester at Oakdale High School. The classes are held after hours, and draw around 150 students per semester. The school is looking to expand its offerings, and possibly move to a different facility.
“We really don´t feel like we have got some of the visibility and connection with the community that we should have,” says Columbia Vice President For Student Learning Dennis Gervin.This is really an opportunity for us to let them know that we´re there and we want to find out the best way to serve them.”
The meeting will run from 6:30 to 9pm, Tuesday, June 12, at the Gene Bianchi Community Center in downtown Oakdale.
