Fabulous relationships

Posted on in Campus News

Less than six months ago, the new President of South Central College assumed her duties of leading South Central College.  During the past six months many new and exciting opportunities for students have developed and Dr. Parker was able to spend some time "listening" to the needs of our region's fabulous partners.

Just last week, Dr. Parker meet with the leadership team at Kibble Equipment, spoke with the Waseca Rotary club, viistied with Itron, toured Emerson (pictured) and finished the week by meeting with the leadership team at 3M in New Ulm.

Class of 1947

Posted on in Remember When?

Another semester is quickly coming to an end at South Central College, and that means more trained graduates will be entering the workforce. However, the first graduating class from Mankato Vocational School was in 1947 (pictured).

 

The Kline Garage in downtown Mankato was the first site for the vocational school that offered programs in electrical careers, machine tool and auto mechanics.

The Mankato Vocational School, governed by the Mankato School District, was founded in 1946 as the first public post-secondary vocational-technical school in Minnesota.

Do you recognize any graduates in this photo?

SCC Black Squirrels: Taking Leadership Opportunities to a New Level

Posted on in Department Highlights

What has two beady eyes, a fuzzy black tail and is often seen climbing trees on campus? Here is a hint: SCC has survived without an official mascot – until recently!

The SCC Student Senates on the Faribault and North Mankato Campuses voted unanimously to name the black squirrel as the mascot of SCC. Seeking the input of students in the look of our mascot’s logo, a contest was held for its creation. Congratulations to Taylor Huber, a 2012 SCC Graphic Communications graduate for creating our new design.

Student Senate is only one of the more than 25 diverse student organizations to participate across both campuses. These organizations provide additional opportunities to SCC students for learning, involvement, leadership, community building, and creative expression.

When you were on campus, did you participate in a student organization? What advice would you have for current students in regards to getting involved?
