March is Women's History Month!

Women’s History Month is an annual observance to highlight the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society. Celebrated during March in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia, corresponding with International Women’s Day on March 8, it is observed during October in Canada. A week-long observation in Sonoma County, California in 1978 was subsequently championed by Gerda Lerner and the National Women’s History Alliance to be recognized as a national week (1980) and then month (1987) in the United States, spreading internationally after that.  Click here to learn more.

Student Calendar

My experience at VA Western was excellent. The flexibility of the classes made it possible for me to earn an Associate’s degree over the course of two pregnancies. Additionally, once I finished my degree I was able to seamlessly transfer to a four-year institution where I went on to complete a Bachelor’s degree. My time at VA Western gave me the confidence and education I needed to make that goal possible. I will always think back fondly on those years!
