Great news! SCC is one of the best colleges in the nation to work for, according to a new survey by the Chronicle of Higher Education. Thank YOU for making our campus such a wonderful place. http://bit.ly/1qyd7IX

  Students, faculty & staff agree - SCC is the place to be
Friday, 18 July 2014

No doubt about it. St. Charles Community College is an awesome place to work and learn.

I love working here, and it's clear the rest of SCC's faculty and staff members agree. A recent employee survey landed us Top Workplace recognition in The St. Louis-Post Dispatch, which doesn't surprise me at all.

Even cooler, our students feel the same way and are spreading their thoughts for all to hear.

As the social media person at SCC, I get to see posts about the college on a regular basis. I thought it would be fun to share a few unprompted posts from our campus community with you, so you can feel warm and fuzzy too!

Monday, 7 July 2014

I once did a monthly post about a favorite tree species on campus, or a plant on campus I thought should be utilized in the landscape more. Problem is I am running out of trees to talk about!

As I work outdoors I do not get to spend much time getting to know my family here at S.C.C. This is unfortunate, so I am making it a point to talk to someone new as often as possible, and get to know everyone, including those interesting people we never get to see. I figured why not post these encounters in my blog for us all to see. I will be stopping by random buildings to meet new people or interview interesting people such as yourselves!

Meet, Brian Alich S.C.C. Art Studio Technician!

Me: How long have you been with S.C.C? 
Brian: " Two and a half years..."

Me: What types pf projects have you been involved in?
Brian: "The art flower pots at Visual Arts Bulding and Fine Arts Building. Also working on a near-finished Kamra-e-faoree camera..."

Skillfully Crafted Kamra-e-faoree camera by Brian Alich...

Me: Where are you from?
Brian:  "Indianapolis, Indiana."

Me: What is your favorite thing to do? 
Brian: "Art."

Me: What is the last song you listened to? 
Brian: "I was listening to Tame Impala in my car."

Me: What is your favorite thing about S.C.C?
Brian: "Working with a team of like-minded individuals."

Me: Tell me something about yourself that would surpise us here at S.C.C; 
Brian: "I have all my internal organs!"

Brian Alich works in VAB and is vital to the success of the art program and is a very talented artist. Stay rooted and next month I will be meeting someone from our amazing housekeeping department! Until then I will see you outside.

Do you have "soft" skills? Employers and admissions committees are looking for applicants with them. Learn more: http://jenny.stchas.edu/2014/07/soft-skills-learned-hard-way.html.


Jenny's Blog: Soft skills learned the hard way
jenny.stchas.edu
We seem to hear a lot about soft skills these days, such as “students don’t have soft skills” or “employers want soft skills”. So what ARE soft skills and why are they so important?

  Top Workplace Selection
Wednesday, 2 July 2014


Top Work Places 2014




Congratulations to everyone here at SCC who makes it possible for this second consecutive selection as a Top Workplace in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch survey.  This independent, employee-driven affirmation of the positive aspects of our work environment is heartening and motivating, I hope for all of us who work here.




Results from this year's survey will be posted soon.  Our strength areas in the survey again this year are in confidence and trust in leadership and the direction of the college.  Our greatest gains were in feeling well-informed about important decisions, faith that senior managers understand what is really happening at SCC, and confidence in the future at SCC.


Whatever the basis of our selection, it should give us great pride in the work environment that we collectively create here at SCC.  This is indeed a special place to learn and to work.  Thank you once again to all of those who contribute to our success in this and every other arena.
