Enrollment and completion of courses of study is a primary function of a student. However, when acquiring an education, other activities related to the coursework can provide tangible evidence of interest and initiative. To that end, staff and administration at the Frederick V. Pankow Center encourages all of its students to participate in clubs and associations directly related to their course of study; to share those experiences with other students and to be proud when challenges are met and goals are achieved.
