Fall term

This morning is the start of fall term at PCC. The campuses are bursting with energy yet again.

In my part of this world, all is going well at this point. Our systems are usually stressed during the first week of a term and again on the first day of registration. It is looking like the beginning of fall term may be on par with the beginning of this past winter term — which saw usage in our student portal, MyPCC, grow 50% over last year’s numbers. This implies that winter term 2009 will see continued growth.

If our day holds out in MyPCC, our next big target date is November 19, the start of winter registration and historically our busiest day of the year. We still have some improvements to get in place before then which doesn’t give us a lot of time.

Here’s hoping for a busy, but quiet, rest of today.
