Plaza College Community Update

March 23, 2020

Plaza College Community,

In the midst of the COVID-19, Plaza College is working harder than ever to provide students, faculty, and staff with the necessary procedures to continue to offer students the best possible experience during this time.

Classes in all programs are currently being offered virtually. Classes are taught by a live instructor, ready to help, in real time, and guide students to continue their studies. These virtual classes are accessed through each student’s ecampus portal, with separate virtual learning modules for every professor.

One of Plaza’s greatest asset for students is the Academic Resource Center (ARC), which allows students to have free tutoring and refreshing in any area they so need. We are proud to announce that the ARC is now LIVE ONLINE. This can be accessed by:

1. When you log into eCampus, click the ARC link above your courses.

2.On the new page, you will see a list of ARC tutors available each day. The tutor’s name includes their hours and the subjects they tutor. Anyone who has hours when you are online is available. Click the name of the tutor you wish to meet with.

3.When you click on the name of the tutor you want to see, you will see the drop down options above. Click on “more details,” and it will open your Google Calendar.

4.In the calendar pop-up, click on “Join Hangouts Meet.” Once you do, you will be live in Google Meets with your tutor! It will look like your online classes.

 

While it is best to use Google Meets, you will also see a phone number for remote contact. We look forward to seeing you there! If you have any questions about the ARC, please contact Director Krampf at akrampf@plazacollege.edu.

For prospective students looking to apply to our programs, we are now offering VIRTUAL INTERVIEWS! This is a great way to start the process and learn about our programs in depth! By filling out an online application, your admissions counselor will reach out to you. If you’ve already submitted your application, please email Caroline Callahan, Director of Admissionscmc@plazacollege.edu for instructions on how to proceed in the process.

VIRTUAL ADMISSIONS NOW AVAILABLE

March 18, 2020

Hi Prospective Students!

Here at Plaza, we’re taking steps to protect both our students’ safety and their goal of earning a college degree during this difficult time. That’s why we’ve implemented some new procedures so that we can all practice safe social distancing standards, but you don’t have to put your plans on hold for any longer.

The Admissions Department has set up a system to allow you to complete your Spring 2020 application and registration process virtually. Virtual admissions will enable you to receive and provide all of the information necessary for a successful school start by phone or video calling – no in-person appointment necessary!

The College is confident that face-to-face classes will be able to resume at the start of our Spring 2020 semester, and we’d hate for you to miss out!

We can’t wait to meet with you in person, but for now, please use this link to begin your application.  If you’ve already submitted your application, please email Caroline Callahan, Director of Admissionscmc@plazacollege.edu for instructions on how to proceed in the process.

Sincerely,

The Admissions Team @ Plaza College

Business Student Profile

March 13, 2020
Aisha B. is in the process of completing her Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management this Winter Semester. Her inspiration to study business started during her high-school years and continued through her time working in the corporate field at H&R Block, citing that she wanted to “become more proficient and pursue a business degree” in this arena.⁣
Aisha expressed that her biggest source of support in her academics has been the professors. “Being a single parent and coming back to school after a good amount of time was definitely a challenge and the professors have been willing and easy to communicate with. If I’m having a difficult situation, need some flexibility or need clarification, they’ve been easy to reach out to with no hesitation.” Professor Eckhardt says “I have had Aisha Bennerson as a student both at the Associate’s and Bachelor’s levels in the business degree program. Aisha always came to class prepared and met assigned deadlines. Her bubbly personality was infectious and made the classroom a happy place to be.”⁣
Aisha’s dream job would be to work for a company that truly values their employees and would allow her to expand her professional knowledge such as an organization like Google, expressing that she’s done the research and it fits her desired criteria! She is also a big proponent of progressive work cultures since she enjoys “out of the box” thinking.⁣
