Walters State Adopting New Summer Hours
May 15, 2017

All campuses of Walters State Community College are adopting summer hours. The college will extend its hours of operation Monday through Thursday and will be closed on Fridays. The college will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday starting May 22. The summer schedule will be in effect through Aug. 4.

This change will enable the college to better serve students and community members during the summer while realizing savings in energy and facilities maintenance costs.
Visitors to and from academic divisions, student affairs, business services and other administrative offices drop significantly on Fridays during the summer, while the demand for early morning and later hours during the week increases as students and working adults enroll and register for fall semester. 

Employees will be required to work the same number of hours during the summer by extending their workday Monday-Thursday.

Summer hours for the R. Jack Fishman Library will be 8 a.m.-8:15 p.m., Monday-Thursday. These hours are the same as in previous years. The hours for the Great Smoky Mountains Expo Center will remain unchanged. 
The college will honor all commitments to open facilities on Fridays for previously scheduled events.
