Kirtland Community College, a two-year institution in Roscommon County, Michigan offers its 1800 students associate degrees and professional diplomas in such arenas as accounting, criminal justice, and mechatronics, among many more. All KCC students can choose an approach to their educational path that fits their needs, whether it be via in-classroom work, through online courses, or by a hybrid of the two. Particularly talented enrollees can apply for the Honors Program, which grants an honors designation to an associate’s degree for just an additional 12 credits of coursework, and grants opportunities to compete for scholarships of up to $2,000 per year. Furthermore, with a full-service cafeteria (the Kirtland Grill), comprehensive bookstore and library and a dedicated Center for Teaching and Learning, Kirtland’s resources rival those of large universities, while its size still allows for small class sizes and individualized attention. And culture is rich here: the community theatre at the Kirtland Center for the Performing Arts performs a mainstage show and two traveling shows per year, in addition to sponsoring a fully-funded Youth Theatre for regional children in grades kindergarten through eight. So come watch the KCC Firebirds in action; you just might learn a little something!
