See a recent VWCC student success story from WDBJ7!  David Falls was the VWCC instructor who taught Microcomputer Systems Technology Training at the Western Virginia Regional Jail to 25 inmates as part of the "Second Chance Technology Careers" Department of Labor grant.  The program was a collaborative effort between Virginia Cares, Virginia Western Community College, and the Western Virginia Regional Jail.  http://www.wdbj7.com/news/wdbj7-roanoke-man-gets-second-chance-with-a-new-program-and-local-business-20121213,0,3303315.story




Special Notice Concerning College Deliveries

When submitting eVA orders, please be sure to indicate the Ship To Address on your orders.  This is accomplished by clicking on the drop down menu next to Ship To: and choosing one of the address selections listed in the link below:


Companies have delivered packages to the FMS building with no indication of who the package is for and during hours when the college is closed.  When at all feasible, packages should be delivered directly to the buildings and/or department or division.  If packages are delivered to FMS directly, receiving hours are 7:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.  Packages are not received when the college is closed on weekends or on holidays.  If a fork lift is needed in order to offload an order, an advanced notice of 24 hours is required.

Best practice would suggest that we make vendors aware of our holiday closings and request delivery prior to the holiday break on 12/19/12 at 12 o'clock noon or after January 2, 2013 when we return. This can be done by adding a comment to the order and clicking in the box that makes it visible to the vendor.
