Motlow State Community College is hosting a series of "On Campus Registration Rush" events as part of its continuing focus on student enrollment and student success.
The "Rush" events are scheduled beginning August 10 at Motlow's Moore County and Fayetteville campuses. They are designed to facilitate students registering for Fall 2021 classes, which begin August 23.
Motlow State Community College and the National Healthcare Corporation (NHC) have established a collaborative agreement that will add an additional nursing instructor and approximately ten more nursing student slots for the LPN to RN program at Motlow.
A recent Treasury Department report noted that Motlow State was recognized as a leader in controlling the cost of college attendance. Motlow distinguished itself as a leader in preventing the increase of fees associated with online learning.
Tennessee's public higher education institutions have provided online courses for more than two decades. The prevalence of online courses increased during the COVID-19 pandemic. At some colleges and universities, students are charged higher mandatory fees than students who attend class in person.
The Workforce Development Department at Motlow State Community College recently purchased an aptitude assessment program called YouScience that uses brain games to determine a student's aptitude for specific careers.
Motlow State's very own theater instructor, Emily Seal, was awarded Arts Educator of the Decade during the 2020 BroadwayWorld Nashville awards.
"The award came in the middle of the pandemic when I had not stepped foot on a stage in a year. It was a nice light in the dark time," said Seal, an Associate Professor for Theatre and Communication who has worked at Motlow for ten years. "People voted online. Many of the community theatre members are the people who voted for me, and that was very kind."
