SouthArk on Tour in Warren

Representatives of South Arkansas Community College will be visiting Warren on July 28, part of the six-city SouthArk on Tour.

Taking place at SouthArk’s Education Center, located in the Brunson Complex at 204 Bragg St., the evening event is intended to reach out to Bradley County residents and discover what their educational needs are, according to marketing coordinator Heath Waldrop.

“We want the people in Bradley County to know that we’re here to provide services to them,” Waldrop said, “whether that be credit or non-credit. We’re expanding our offerings at our Warren location, and would like to get feedback on the kinds of classes that the community wants and needs.”
College spokespeople also will be on hand to provide enrollment and financial aid information and to answer any other questions that visitors might have about SouthArk.

“We’re seeing more and more Bradley County citizens at SouthArk, which is fantastic—but we’d always love to have even more,” Waldrop said. “The feedback that we get from our students from Bradley County is very positive, leading us to believe that SouthArk is a great fit for a lot of students in this area—both traditional and non-traditional. And even if you or someone in your family isn’t in the market for college at the moment, we want to hear from the public just to get a feel for their personal educational experiences and what we could do to meet other needs and interests. A lot of people in Bradley County don’t even realize that we have a brick-and-mortar presence so close to them, and haven’t seen our facilities, so we’d like for them to stop in, too.”

The informal event begins with come-and-go time at 5 p.m. Food and beverages will be provided for those who haven’t had the opportunity to get dinner in the evening. A seated feedback session with college administrators will start at 6 p.m.
