The center officially began its semester on Aug. 10, currently hosting 36 students, but is still welcoming prospective students to sign up at their convenience.
“If students didn’t enroll in August, because we are still in the middle of a pandemic, then we wanted to allow them that comfort to sign up in October or November,” said Interim Program Director Crystal Hayes.
