Are branch college campuses supposed to be as big as the actual college? What might be the advantages or disadvantages for students, teachers or staff members? Here at the San Luis Learning Center we have different expectations as well as perspectives about the structure and size of the building. The San Luis Learning Center, constructed in 2007, is located aside from San Luis High School and it’s a single building in which a good quantity of students attend each day. For some of us the size of this college is advantageous, and for other students it might not be quite as beneficial but instead unhelpful. Students, as well as teachers and staff members, have different opinions about this particular subject that we have to deal with day by day.

Not Just a Room

Students hanging out the available space provided in the San Luis campus, 2013.

College, a place to learn and work towards your future career goals and gain social interaction experiences. The AWC which is the community college has various campuses throughout the Yuma County. The branch here in San Luis, AZ is not as big as the main campus, the lack of places to kill time, hang out with friends, or even study has an impact when most student collide in the main office. This comes into much more consideration when the high school next door brings their seniors to be freshmen to take their proper tests for their next year in college; Creating a barricade of people all around the main office lacking the space to even walk by. We strongly believe that our branch requires more areas for current students to study and socialize while remaining in campus. For example, a game room filled with air hockey or pool tables in the middle of the room and TVs mounted on the walls along with tables around the room. Or a study room where there was more than one person helping you out with every question that arises in your studies and that has the time of listening to your questions.

Just like any other student enrolled at Arizona Western College on the various campuses. I drive every morning to the San Luis Learning Center hoping to get the best nearby parking space. Let me tell you this is not the easiest task. Especially after Omar Heredia our school counselor provided a report where it states that SLLC enrolled 1,480 students during the fall semester of 2013. “The number of students have increase over the years which is amazing” as stated by Omar and  I might add we gave 21 staff members, 20 to 50 faculty members, two maintenance personnel, one security guard, and only 116 available parking spots. Somehow students, faculty, service providers and unexpected guests have managed to find a parking space every time we are rushing into the campus. Continue reading “AWC San Luis Annex Parking Lot”
