Welcome Back!

Welcome to the Spring 2013 Semester!  We are excited to have you back on campus!  Whether you are a new or returning student, we are pleased that you chose J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College to meet your educational goals.  We hope that you found time to relax, refresh and rewind during the holidays and that you are happy to be back, seeing old friends and looking forward to making new ones this winter.

If you haven’t registered for classes, it’s not too late!  Late registration for the first session of classes runs through Friday, January 11th and additional class sessions begin on February 5th, March 5th, and April 9th.  
You’ll want to know about the many events that Reynolds has going on throughout the semester, so check out Student Life’s Events Calendar at http://www.reynolds.edu/studentlife.  Upcoming events include Name That Tune Music Trivia games in January, a bus trip to an NBA game in February, Spirit Week, 3 on 3 Intramural Basketball and Intramural Soccer just to name a few. 

On a more serious note, renovations at the Downtown campus continue and some services have been temporarily relocated while construction takes place.  For the most up-to-date information on Downtown Campus renovations, visit www.reynolds.edu.
