Gearing Up For FSCC Fall Semester by Briana Blandamer

As summer comes to a close, the staff and students here at FSCC are gearing up for the Fall 2018 semester.

Beginning in mid-July, the volleyball and football athletes began their summer camps and practices, working hard to prepare for this year’s season.

Greyhound Volleyball will begin their season with a tournament, Friday, August 24th playing at 3 pm and 7 pm. They will continue into Saturday with games at 11 am and 3 pm.

FSCC Football will kick off their season on August 25th at 3 pm at Highland Community College. Come to support our Greyhounds!

Aside from athletics, students planning to live in Greyhound and Boileau Hall began move-ins through to Friday. Weekend move-ins are permitted by appointment only. If you are a new student moving into a dorm room, stop by the Business Office and they can give you further instructions.

The students are not the only ones looking forward to this semester at FSCC. The staff and their families had a meet-and-greet, company picnic on Tuesday evening to welcome new staff members to their team and get ready for this school year. You can find articles about our new staff members here at
