  2. Graduate in three years - You take three semesters per year and graduate with your bachelor's degree a year ahead of your peers. It is still eight semesters, you just attend a couple of full summer semesters and complete your four year degree a year ahead of most students.

Oak Valley College is changing my future. I really didn’t think that college would be my thing. I was really, really nervous. This school has totally taken that anxiety away. Everyone is really helpful so it makes me feel like I can achieve my goals for the future.

Closing the third academic year at Oak Valley brought about many things to be grateful for. First, and foremost, join in and praise God for all the gifts, talents, and resources He has provided over this foundational journey.

As Californians, and more generally, as Americans, we should strive to ensure every opportunity is afforded the next generation to earn a high-quality (and we would argue affordable) education, so the next generation may effectively thrive and support us old people. This is not a zero-sum game (that phrase seems to be popular these days).

Over the last few years I have had the chance to watch different Christian liberal arts colleges lose their place of influence in the communities they serve. I asked the question, “Why? What happened that caused them to no longer be outwardly focused?” Here are a few thoughts for us to ponder.
