Quote from the President

"Each year, Casper College enrolls nearly 7 percent of its service area as credit students, one of the highest penetration rates in the country. Those who aren't credit students are drawn to attractions such as the world's largest mounted Columbian Mammoth, various camps and conferences, a full slate of fine arts events, and the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute. A national ranking organization placed Casper College in the top 25 in overall quality, an article on the most beautiful community colleges in America placed Casper College at number five, and a recent polling of voters resulted in 84 percent of respondents giving the college an overall grade of A or B."
