The first day of classes for the fall semester is August 27, 2012 — just three-weeks away — but there is still time to enroll at Genesee Community College to launch or boost a career in any one of 67 different degree and certificate programs. Scholarships and grants are still available for students who qualify, and the admissions staff can help with the application process.

GCC offers a wide range of flexible class options to fit an individual’s time, interests and location. Students can attend classes full-time, part-time, online or on Sunday. Visit online to check out all the options.

 
GCC also has seven campus centers to make programs even more accessible:

  • Arcade – 25 Edward St. (585) 492-5265 
  • Batavia – One College Rd. (585) 343-0055 
  • Dansville – 31 Clara Barton St. (585) 335-7820

  • Medina – 11470 Maple Ridge Rd. (585) 798-9765 
  • Warsaw – 115 Linwood Ave. (585) 786-3010
The main campus in Batavia also offers on-site child care, state-of-the-art fitness facilities, student housing, a new art gallery, theater space and an outstanding library that also provides online access to more than 86,000 volumes, ebooks, reference materials and electronic resources.
 
GCC offers small class sizes to allow for greater interaction with instructors and more than 40 clubs and organizations providing excellent opportunities for real-world experience in a variety of interests from animation to human services, adventure club to veterans.
 
With everything GCC has to offer, plus student completion rates that are among the highest in the country for similar schools, there’s no time like the present to lay the foundation for a solid future by enrolling in GCC before fall classes begin.

Batavia's Jenna Hubbard is making a splash in the modeling world and Next Level Fitness is proud to be part of it and you can help her, too. Hubbard recently competed in a modeling contest in Buffalo and after five weeks of models competing to make it to the finals, Hubbard has advanced to the final six.

The model search is sponsored by one of Buffalo's largest nightclubs, Bayou, and hosted by Kiss 98.5 radio personality Tony Mamaluke. Each week 15-20 new girls competed for a chance to advance, and there has been a total of upwards of 100 girls competing. This past Thursday, Hubbard had her chance to shine as she surpassed the 17 week five contestants and advanced.

The contest is scored on a four-part system with part of the score being Facebook "LIKE" votes. Next Level is encouraging everyone to click "LIKE" and "SHARE" on her photo to help her win. Next Level has helped with her a gym membership to stay in shape and she has also been tanning there as well, so she is able to look her best for the competition.

"This is a great opportunity for me and I want to thank Next Level for sponsoring me and making this possible!" Hubbard said.

She is the only finalist from Genesee County and is competing for the title of Miss Bayou Buffalo, $500 cash, and a photo shoot to be featured on the nightclub's billboards in Downtown Buffalo.

If she wins, she plans to donate part of the winnings to "Austin's Army" to benefit Pembroke senior Austin Heineman who was recently diagnosed with a rare, aggressive form of childhood cancer.

The finals are scheduled for this Thursday night and the Facebook voting ends at 8 p.m. that night. To vote for Jenna, click LIKE on the photo here: http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10150756177625759&set=t.100000085482467&type=3&theater

THANK YOU BATAVIA!

Thank you for being a great community to live in and do business in. And thanks to all those who help us to better serve our clients. 

If not for the great service of the Post Office, the banks, the brokers and the attorneys who help us with our clients, and the police who watch out for us late at night, and the DPW for treating our street like their street, and the restaurants for keeping us fed and smiling, and our business neighbors for helping and caring, we wouldn’t be successful.

Especially, thank you to each and every client for allowing us to serve you.

Batavia is a GREAT place to live and work.

We are proud to be Batavians!
