Win Cash – Roanoke Prevention Alliance Survey

Win Cash - Roanoke Prevention Alliance Survey

The Roanoke Prevention Alliance (RPA) is implementing a Young Adult Drinking Behaviors Survey focused on 18 to 24 year olds that live in Roanoke City.  The purpose of the survey is to identify ways to reduce alcohol related motor vehicle crashes.

The RPA is asking you to help by completing this very short survey.  If you are one of the first 250 people to complete the survey you will get a $5 gift card from either Sheetz or Kroger.  The survey link is:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/YASRoanokeCity REMEMBER: Ages 18 – 24 and Roanoke City Residents only.

This survey is completely anonymous and in no way can responses be tracked back to the person taking the survey.  At the completion of the survey respondents will click on an external link to keep responses anonymous and to complete the registration form so the gift card can be mailed.  Thank you for your willingness to help the Roanoke Prevention Alliance reach its goal of reducing alcohol related motor vehicle crashes in Roanoke City.

Spring 2014 Tuition Payment Plan – Sign Up TODAY!

To help meet educational expenses, Virginia Western Community College is pleased to participate in Nelnet’s tuition payment plan.  For a non-refundable fee of $25.00, Nelnet allows monthly, interest-free tuition payments. The earlier students enroll the more payment options they may have. The payment plan for Spring 2013 will begin on November 11, 2013.

If a payment plan is not established or if tuition is not paid by December 5, 2013 students who registered early for classes will be dropped and will need to repeat the registration process. Financial Aid students are protected from enrollment cancellation up to the amount of their Financial Aid award. Financial Aid students should pay any differences between their total award and the amount due to prevent enrollment cancellation.

Payment plan sign-up instructions and deadlines will be posted on the Student Bulletin, Facebook, Twitter, www.virginiawestern.edu and on the VWtvs located across campus.

Step by step directions on how to enroll in a payment plan are available at http://www.virginiawestern.edu/studenthelp/student/tuitionpaymentplan.php

No Shave November

Hello,
Just in case you are wondering why the Campus Police officers are looking a bit scruffy and unshaven during November there is a good reason. Because nearly everyone has been touched by cancer in some way, the Campus Police Department has decided to show our support and make a difference by forming a team to support the American Cancer Society. We are the Virginia Western Campus Police Team ACS. Using the links on this page, you can join our fight against cancer by clicking to Join our Team or Donate. Today, there is more hope than ever for people facing cancer. We hope you will join us.  Click here to view the TEAM page for Virginia Western Campus Police
