Welcome to the new Kaskaskia College Scroll! Kaskaskia College, in partnership with the Centralia Sentinel, will be producing the new Scroll as a weekly newspaper, filled with KC news, events, and student and staff generated stories about our College and communities. In this introductory issue, we will inform readers about who we are and what we do.
Kaskaskia College is a growing, dynamic institution that has recently been ranked in the top twenty community colleges in the nation! We are continually expanding our program offerings, building new facilities, and updating our classrooms and laboratories to further our reputation as a world-class college. Our outstanding Student Support Services, small class sizes, and personalized instruction continue our philosophy that, at KC, “Everyone is Someone.”
Student life is vibrant at Kaskaskia College. With over 35 student clubs and organizations, students are finding ways to get to know one another and to pursue their interests while working together on meaningful projects.
With eight varsity sports, including: Baseball, Softball, Volleyball, Basketball, Cross Country, Soccer, Tennis and Golf, along with the Dance Team and Cheerleading Squad, the KC Blue Angels and Blue Devils are always in action.

The KC Season of Entertainment offers everyone the opportunity to enjoy diverse and spectacular concerts and performances as well as interesting and entertaining lectures from prominent guests.
The Scroll has been produced by Kaskaskia College for decades for distribution to our students and alumni, and we are happy to now be able to include our communities as well through the Sentinel mailing list.
