|Delta-Ouachita enrollment tops 700|
Louisiana Technical College's Delta-Ouachita Campus wrapped up its student registration recently, enrolling more than 700 students.
Students enrolled for the college's day classes and also for evening programs, which include welding, drafting, electronics and business.
The college this semester also wants to provide its barber styling classes during the evening. Also, for the first time this semester, the college is offering an evening practical nursing program.
"It's the only one in the state in the Louisiana Technical College System," said assistant campus dean Margie Mixon.
The college has filled most of the slots for its practical nursing program.
"That's due to the demand that's in the allied health field," Mixon said.
She said that during the economic downturn facing the country, one good job to have is in the medical field.
"During this recession period, it just seems that if you are employed in allied health, you're going to keep your job," Mixon said.
Also, there continues to exist a demand for welders nationally and internationally. During the fall semester, the college's welding program was filled to capacity.
"We enrolled as many as we could," Mixon said. "We were running a morning program, afternoon program and evening program. We had all those full. We even had high school students who chose to come in the evening because we couldn't get them into a daytime slot."
Kathy Gardner, director of student affairs, said the college tries to accommodate students with hours in which they can attend a class.
"If it's a night student in a program we offer nights, we'll accommodate that," Gardner said. "If they can only come a couple of times a week, we'll accommodate that."
