York County Community College growing rapidly
PORTLAND (WGME) – Maine's community colleges are not only the least expensive in New England, at least one of them is among the fastest growing in the country.
The Chronicle of Higher Education just released a new list, and the York County Community College in Wells is making the grade, as the 19th fastest growing community college in the country.
The college more than doubled its enrollment from 2005 to 2015.
College leaders say they've been working hard to add programs that fit the need of students and Maine businesses.
The York County Community College is growing in more ways than one, with plans to open a brand new building in two weeks.
