Open House held at Cowley College�s Westside Center
With an opportunity to showcase its new Westside Center in Wichita, Cowley College held an Open House from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday at its new location at 13th and Tyler.
As part of the Open House, Radio station KZCH 96.3 conducted a live remote at the facility, while sandwiches, cookies and drinks were provided.
After spending the past three years located at West 21st Street in Wichita, the college is excited about its new building.
“We have seen an increase in people stopping in from our previous location,” Cathy Britton, associate director of enrollment management at Cowley College’s Eastside and Westside Centers said. “It is a very visible spot and a beautiful facility. We are pleased with what the college has provided us to present to the community in order to be the face of Cowley College here in Wichita.”
With the grand re-opening of its Westside Center, Cowley College has two locations in Wichita to go along with its main campus in Arkansas City as well as Centers in Mulvane and Winfield.
Also on Tuesday, 18 employees from Cowley’s main campus in Arkansas City took part in a bus tour of some of the school’s outreach centers. The bus left from Arkansas City and had stops at Cowley’s Mulvane Center as well as Eastside and Westside Centers in Wichita.
Along with Britton, enrollment services representatives Krista Ellis and Robin Riedle will be employed at the Westside Center. Eddie Andreo, director of instructional support, and Julie Rorabaugh, director of instructional technology, will also have offices inside the Westside Center, which officially opened to the public on June 11.
The Westside Center will have advisors on site to help students determine which academic major or career they are looking to pursue and will enroll students for classes held at any location or online. The facility will also have computers available for students to use for placement testing or to do class work during office hours.
Payments will also be accepted at the Westside Center.
