Guam - The Guam Community College got a record five percent increase in student enrollment for this Spring semester. According to GCC president Dr. Mary Okada, 2,463 students registered for postsecondary classes. She says it is obvious that students are pleased with the improved learning environment and the quality of the education they are receiving at the community college.

Okada states, "The opening of the Student Center in December 2011 as our third new building on campus, combined with new programs such as Pre-Architectural Drafting and Civil Engineering Technology, send the message that GCC is progressive with regard to the knowledge and training that our students need to compete for jobs in our increasingly technological workforce."
