This month's KPC Word on Campus

What are your plans for spring break, and how do they compare with what you did last year?

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8

I plan to visit my daughter. This is my first year and did not have spring break last year.

– Richard Herd, KBC

Bachelor of Science, Construction Management

Last year I was up to my eye balls in homework. Although it was tedious to be working on school work during the break, it was very rewarding to get all the work done. This year, depending on the course load, if I can get away, I plan on going seal hunting.

– Andrew John, AES

Associate of Applied Science, Process Technology

It will consist of doing lots of homework, hanging out with friends and playing World of Warcraft. Compared to last year, I will be hanging out with even more friends because I have so many more now!

– Nancy Nelson, KRC

Associate of Applied Science, Occupational Safety and Health

Last year I was preparing for the Governor’s Health and Safety Conference as the student coordinator. This year I plan on working on launching the SPAN International Learning Management System and helping other students study for their professional safety credential examinations.

– Jessica Smith, AES

Associate of Applied Science, Occupational Safety and Health

No change of plans this year. I’m spending time with my family and children.

– Stevana Roy, KBC

Associate of Applied Science, Early Childhood Development

I will be working here at KRC in the facilities maintenance department. And that’s what I did last year.

– Shayne Miller, KRC

Associate of Arts

I plan to work on my biology term paper!

– Joell Slade, KBC

Associate of Arts

I will be going to New Orleans to see the sights, listen to classical jazz (on the streets and in the clubs) and enjoying the atmosphere that is New Orleans. Actually, last year I did nothing so that I saved my Mom some money.

– Chris McKinney, KRC
