Phi Theta Kappa’s “Top Ten Reasons to Complete a Community College Credential”: A thought-provoking document that describes some obvious and some not so obvious reasons for attaining a college degree. Phi Theta Kappa is the national honors society for community college students. Among many other activities, this group organizes and promotes “Completion Week” activities at community colleges across the country.
Results of “College Completion” Survey: In November 2014 more than 500 Waubonsee students took a 10-question survey on college completion. These results should give you a glimpse into the goals and motivations of a cross section of WCC students.
