Aims students get ready for Fall semester

Submitted on: 08-12-2008

On August 25, Aims students will kick off the 41st Fall semester at Aims Community College in a big way. On the Greeley campus, students will be taking classes in the newly revamped Ed Beaty Hall, which will now house the Aims Institute for Media Studies, which showcases many of Aims' most popular programs including Communications Media, Graphic Technology, Performing and Visual Arts and Computer Information Systems. In the new Beaty Hall will be two new TV studios, a new home for the campus radio station, recording studios as well as many new study and gallery spaces. The Downtown Center in downtown Greeley nearly doubled its space with three new classrooms and a vastly expanded list of classes and programs, including a cooperative venture, First STEP, with the University of Northern Colorado to help incoming freshmen get up to speed academically. In Fort Lupton, the Career Academy program is offering opportunities for high school students to earn college credit and important career skills while still in high school. In Loveland, class offerings have increased by 30 percent based on requests from students to be able to make it easier for students to take all of their classes in Loveland. The newly launched Aims Online campus is also experiencing expansive growth. For the first time, it will be possible to earn a complete associate degree online at Aims. Students can mix and match if they want to take some classes in person and others virtually.
