JAMESTOWN - On Thursday, the doors opened for Jamestown Business College's fall term. President David Conklin was on hand to greet the student body, which included new and returning students enrolled in both associate and bachelor degree programs.
Conklin said he is looking forward to another successful year and pleased with the energy the new students bring to campus.
"We have been experiencing increased enrollments for several years," he said. "But this fall, we saw a jump in the number of traditional students enrolling in our programs." He went on to say, "What this growth tells me is that we are offering an educational path that appeals to both traditional and non-traditional students."

Conklin also noted the continued growth in the college's bachelor degree program. The college began offering its bachelor degree program in 2007.
"Many of our new students are pleased to have the opportunity to complete the higher degree level without having to transfer. That provides real value for our students as they make their plans for the future," he said.
Jamestown Business College offers business-focused Associate and Bachelor's degrees and certificate programs that include targeted professional development activities. For more information on registering for these programs, call 664-5100 or visit us online at www.JamestownBusinessCollege.edu.
