VVC's summer school schedule will be reduced by 19.9 percent

were cut. However, VVC did not cut as many classes as other schools. "Other colleges have decimated their summer school programs� (some) only have 25 percent of their normal schedule," said Allan.
     VVC tried hard to keep classes students needed to graduate. Allan stressed that, "our No. 1 goal is to accommodate as many students as we can. Students are our only reason to be here."
     Students need not worry about the unit cost going up for summer school.  Even if the unit cost goes up from $11 per unit to Davis's proposed $24 per unit, Allan said, "I doubt it will be implemented in the summer."
     Although the opposite was rumored, high school students will still be able to

attend summer school this year. However, the rules for concurrent enrollment, meaning a student is enrolled in both high school and a community college, will now be strictly enforced.
     In addition to cutting some summer school classes, the college is making other changes to cope with budget cuts. Night classes will now be confined to portable classrooms. This is because the upper campus's heating and cooling systems are all linked. Having the whole upper campus air conditioned while many of the rooms are not being used is very inefficient.
     The summer school schedule will be available to students April 21. Classes will start on June 9, with the six-week session ending on July 17 and the eight-week session ending on Aug 7.

Mort Sahl comes to the PAC

Empire and Canada.  The programs are always thematically compiled in order to "gain continuity," Miller said.  He also said, "This year, it will be an all-American program."   
     All the choirs will sing together in a grand performance called "Songs of the People."  Accompanied by Canada's No. 2 orchestra, the choir will sing various American songs including "Joshua Fought The Battle of Jericho," " Steal Away," "I Got a Robe," "Sometimes I Feel Like a Motherless Child," " Every Time I Feel The Spirit," "Deep River" and "When the Saints Go Marching In."
     The VVC singers have a standing invitation to participate in this program because Dr. Miller has worked with conductor Will Kesling, guest conductor of the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, in the past.  "Kesling is aware of the talent that the VVC choir is capable of each and every year," said Miller "(The opportunity) teaches students to perform professionally and is simply a first-class educational experience."
     VVC singer Anna Jordan, who  participated in Vancouver in 2000, is looking forward to the trip.  Of the experience, she said that she had "never worked with a professional orchestra until Canada. Even their practices sounded absolutely perfect."
