Hi all,

Don't know if you noticed the following news item:

"California community college ranked among fastest-growing in the U.S."

California's Sacramento Bee (12/14, Yost) reports, "Folsom Lake College(FLC) has been recognized as one of the fastest-growing community colleges in" the U.S., according to a report by the Community College Week. FLC has an enrollment of approximately 8,500 students "at the main Folsom campus, the El Dorado Center in Placerville and the Rancho Cordova Center." The report by Community College Week ranked FLC as the "10th fastest-growing community college among schools with 5,000 to 9,999 students." From fall 2005 to fall 2006, the school showed an enrollment increase of 12.3 percent. The Bee adds, "Enrollment surged this fall at all four Los Rios campuses, including Sacramento City College, American River College and Cosumnes River College. Folsom Lake College led the way with a 20 percent gain in enrollment over last fall.
