COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo., Nov. 19, 2015 – Due to the recent snowstorm, Pikes Peak Community College (PPCC) has rescheduled the open house for its newest location. It will now take place on Wednesday, Dec. 2, 5 - 7 p.m. in the Creekside Success Center, 3850 Pony Tracks Dr., Colorado Springs, 80922 (southwest corner of North Carefree Circle and Peterson Road).
PPCC staff will be on hand to provide tours along with general information about PPCC curriculum, enrollment and financial aid. The public is invited to attend. RSVPs aren’t necessary but would be appreciated, at ppcc.edu/creekside.
The college will begin offering for-credit general education classes to PPCC students at Creekside in January 2016. Most classes will be offered Monday through Thursday mornings, with a few being offered in the evening.
This location was established to better serve the eastern portion of PPCC’s service area and to connect students from Falcon School District 49 (D49), the fastest-growing district in Colorado, to PPCC courses early on in their education.
The Creekside Success Center is owned by D49 and houses some of its administrative and student services. PPCC is leasing the second floor of the building to hold classes – but no other services will be available. Classes will adhere to the PPCC instructional calendar and to its delay and closure policies, not those of D49.
