2006 FTE Enrollment

2006 - Dramatic Growth


Recent years have seen a dramatic growth in the college. The addition of five major outreach centers in three counties have more than doubled enrollment.


The Arkansas City campus remains the focal point of the college. It is conveniently located in the heart of downtown Arkansas City.


The 19-building, 15-acre campus is a beautifully landscaped blend of modern and traditional facilities. Most student services, including admissions, registration, billing, and financial aid, are conveniently located in Galle-Johnson Hall, 125 S. Second Street.


The campus has seen the addition of several new buildings and remodeling of others. Since 2000, the college has added the Sid Regnier Bookstore, McAtee Dining Hall, and the Webb- Brown classroom building. The home of Cowley basketball and volleyball, Scott Auditorium, received a major renovation and addition of the Tiger Athletic Hall of Fame. The Kerr building became home to the art, graphic design, and journalism program following its remodel. The Nelson Student Center, fondly known as The Jungle, is now home to the Tiger Deli, Internet Café, and Game Room. The Student Success Center is housed in the Courtright Station of The Underground.


The Wichita Southside Center is the largest of the centers. Other centers include Mulvane, Bloomenshine, Wichita Aviation Tech, Winfield Allied Health, Mulvane Industrial Tech, and Wellington.

More than a dozen smaller sites are linked to the main campus through the Interactive Distance Learning (IDL) television system.
