The loneliness of the empty room, the empty
desk, the empty commons, the empty table, the
empty library, and the empty booth has fled be
cause you came to drive it away.
Clubs and Organizations
There’s nothing quite like
a nap before dinner to in
spire the kids to put on a
stack of march records.
The clubs and organizations
of Wilkes Community College
extend their welcome to stu
dents by offering a wide array
of opportunities to become in
volved in the school. The fol
lowing clubs of the college are:
CIRCLE K: This club is di
rected by the Kiwanis Club of
North Wilkesboro. The presi

As you students start the 1970-
71 college year, the second full
year in this facility, it will be
most difficult for you to imagine
how your college got its start.
From 54 students attending eve
ning classes in borrowed spaces
during the Winter of 1966 to an
anticipated 4300 students matri
culating in the many offerings
of the College this year. Pro
jections put Wilkes Community
College at 1300 full-time-equi
valent students for 1970-71.
You cannot possible see all
of your college-mates, for they
will be attending classes not
only on the main campus, but in
buildings in other counties conti
guous to Wilkes; in the evening
as well as in the day-time; and
probably some on Saturday.
The full-time staff serving yo
ur educational needs this year
will number some 89 qualified
individuals; a far cry from the 8
people who worked under the ba
nner of WCC staff just 50 months
I offer you a most profound
“Welcome* — qualified by the
statement that a student may re
main at Wilkes Community Coll
ege as long as capacity to learn
and motivation permits.
