Student Services:

  • The time has come to make a new view book for 2014-2015 year at Holland College. They want to get some feedback from the public and prospective students, especially from island high school students on what type of look they prefer. To do this, they have come up with a survey/contest. Voting is opened until June 20th. Your opinion really matters, plus, there is a chance to win 1 of 5 Holland College hoodies. It is as simple as filling out a 1-2 minute online survey! Survey link: http://www.hollandcollege.com/contests
