FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE AUGUST 2, 2018
KENANSVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA – We are very proud to announce that James Sprunt Community College has been ranked as the second-best community college in the United States by smartasset.com. The college was ranked as the best community college in North Carolina and along the East Coast.
“We feel very honored,” says Dr. Kenneth Boham, Interim President of James Sprunt Community College. “This is a college with a family atmosphere where student success is nurtured… Student success is the only reason we exist.”
The college was ranked #2 based on three metrics: graduation and transfer rate, cost, and student-to-faculty ratio.
“Being a small school there are a lot of advantages” says June Davis, Vice President of Instruction at James Sprunt. “The student to faculty ratio is low thanks to there being a lot of full-time faculty at the college, our staff pays close attention to detail when it comes to student records, which helps keeps our graduation and transfer rate high… we also strive to keep fees as low as possible.”
“Our Board of Trustees are very engaged,” added Dr. Boham. “They set the tone of the college.”
