More Enrolled in Northwest Fla. Colleges

| 6/1/2009

Community college enrollment historically rises during economic downturns. When jobs are scarce, “people have the time and see the need for additional skills,’’ says Tallahassee Community College President Bill Law. Regional colleges are offering shorter sessions, making more classes available online and developing quick jobs courses in likely local demand areas.
