Valley in Motion

ITTA BENA, Miss.— Residents of Coahoma County and surrounding areas wanting to earn a bachelor’s degree have an affordable and accessible option available right in their own backyard, and Mississippi Valley State University invites interested individuals to learn more about this unique opportunity during “MVSU Day @ CCC” Tuesday, March 27.

The 3rd annual event will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. in The Pinnacle, located on the campus of Coahoma Community College (CCC) in Clarksdale.

Themed "Valley in Motion at CCC", it will provide CCC students, MVSU students residing in the Coahoma area as well as interested community members the opportunity to learn more about a partnership between the two institutions that has brought MVSU courses to CCC's campus. 

Organizer Dr. Chresteen Seals, MVSU-CCC site coordinator, said the MVSU Distance Education program provides academic course offerings tailored to meet the needs of traditional as well as non-traditional students.

“We started this partnership with courses from six academic degree programs, but we’re always expanding and changing our offerings,” she said. “We choose the courses we have available based on the demands of the students, so we encourage anyone interested in taking MVSU courses at CCC to let us know so that we can accommodate them.”

During the program, attendees will enjoy performances by MVSU’s band, choir and other special guests. The event will also include presentations from MVSU academic departments. Lunch will be served.

“We’re going to have chairs from each of our academic departments present, so we encourage prospective and current students to stop by to get detailed information regarding our programs,” Seals said.

According to Seals, the MVSU classes offered on CCC’s campus are taught by adjunct instructors and are tailored to fit the needs of the students.

Those MVSU students attending classes through the CCC site are also eligible for financial aid and scholarship opportunities just as those students attending classes on Valley’s main campus.

For questions or more information about MVSU’s CCC site, contact Seals at (662) 621-4057 or visit her office, located on the first floor of CCC’s Zee A. Barron Student, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. each Monday and Tuesday.
