New college president Mark Mitsui tours PCC by shuttle, students enjoy first week
Photos and Story by James Hill
The new term and school year has officially started. It’s a unique beginning because the college leader is as fresh and new as PCC’s incoming first-year students. President Mark Mitsui has been touring the college district via the PCC Shuttle in order to meet with students and staff to get a feel for the college culture and introduce himself to the community. He’s manned welcome tables, visited classes like math, ESOL, Spanish and psychology, to name a few, and toured student resource centers.
In addition to acclimating a new president, PCC’s first crop of Oregon Promise students started their first-ever classes (see classroom pictures below). College Survival instructors welcomed the students and engaged them in meet-and-greet exercises as well as discussed how to succeed at college. And there’s more to come for the rest of the week, so stay tuned!
