Welcome to Spoon River College from President Curt Oldfield

On behalf of the Board of Trustees and all of us at Spoon River College, I’d like to introduce you to one of the finest educational institutions in America. The more you learn about SRC the more you will see our truly unique approach to education, and you will understand our dedication to serving students.

Whether you’re interested in SRC’s arts and sciences program that leads to a four-year degree or you want to pursue a career and technical degree, SRC offers you many great choices. SRC offers you many careers paths in high-growth, high-wage jobs.

From the President

Whatever career path you choose, SRC will make sure you are well prepared and ready to take the next step. Or, if you plan to pursue advanced studies that lead to a degree in medicine, law, engineering, business or education, SRC will help you launch your career with our expanding programs.

I hope your experiences at SRC will be as rewarding as mine while I was a student at Spoon River College. I know that you will find that SRC is dedicated to your success through our small class sizes, free tutoring and the flexibility of our growing list of new online classes. Maybe the best part: SRC offers this outstanding education for thousands of dollars less than you will find anywhere around. It’s good to know that a higher education is still accessible and affordable.

In addition to providing a high quality education that is affordable, I am proud that outside agencies have recognized the hard work of our Faculty and Staff. The Aspen Prize for Community College Excellence named us as one of the top 120 Community Colleges in the Nation and Digital Community College Survey named us 8th in the Nation for improved technology for students. Others are in agreement that SRC is a great place to start.

Please feel free to visit us at any time. Again, thank you for considering SRC, and I hope to see you on one of the two campuses or two centers. I want you to enjoy your experience at SRC. If you see me around, be sure to stop me and tell me your story and goals.
