The college held an open house every Wednesday throughout the summer and received more than 250 applications. Of those applications, well over 150 students have been enrolled. Administrators believe a college like this is in high demand because of the lack of affordable post-secondary educational options for many residents in our area. The college has big plans for the future as well. The Porreco College's three-year plan includes more than $11 million in campus improvements; including extending programs, adding science labs, classroom space and a food service program.
