Weather and other closures!
Hopefully we are done with snow storms and power outages for the year. For updates and information about inclement weather closures can be found at the main college website at: www.pierce.ctc.edu OR www.schoolreport.org. Local TV and radio news stations will announce closures and delays. We regret that we don't have enough staff to call everyone personally when there is a closure during inclement weather and must rely on public announcements regarding campus and site closures. For a recorded message on class status, please call our Continuing Education (CE) Offices at (253)840-8452 for a recorded message about CE classes.

Join us for a trip to Croatia/Slovenia 2013
Aysin Clay, our own in-house travel expert, is busy filling two fabulous Pierce College trips for 2013. In April 2013 she will lead her last trip to Legendary Turkey in 2013 (FULL). If you haven't yet gone to Turkey with Aysin, contact her right away as this trip is filling fast. In September 2013, she will take a group to Croatia/Slovenia. Croatia and Slovenia are becoming quite popular as their newly developed tourist industries are gathering momentum. Aysin visited Croatia/Slovenia last year and has hand picked the best of both for this tour. These are not big bus tours, but a customized small group that allows us to go places we couldn't go if we had a large group. Call Aysin at (253)964-6601 to learn more.
