FRANKLIN—Paul D. Camp Community College has launched a new Web site and renovated three classrooms.

Since 2006, full-time enrollment has jumped nearly 35 percent, creating the need for updates.

“We invested in these classroom and technical renovations to not only help our students today, but to help future students get ahead,” said PDCCC President Dr. Paul William Conco.

The Web site redesign, led by PDCCC Computing Services Manager Beverly Davenport and The Ivy Group — a marketing, consulting and Web design firm based in Charlottesville — features easier navigation. Highlights of www.pdc.edu include a home page slideshow featuring students, staff and faculty, a presence on Facebook and YouTube, and searchable class schedules and employee directory.

PDCCC recently dedicated the repainted classrooms renovated with technology upgrades, and new furniture and wall hangings. Renee Felts, interim dean of occupational and technical programs, along with Conco and Dr. Joe Edenfield, vice-president of financial and administrative services, conducted a ribbon cutting of the rooms.
