Glendale Community College posted one of the largest enrollment gains among California's two-year colleges this fall, reaching a six-year peak of nearly 15,000 students. The number of students on campus, even with more still registering, grew 8.5% between last September and this month, more than doubling the 3% to 4% overall growth projected for the state's community colleges, local and state officials said.

It's no coincidence that the bright-eyed, energetic director of AmeriCorps' Tell Me a Story program is called Hollie Day. Like her name, the Occidental College student brings excitement and rewards to young people in the East Valley. Day, 20, has committed countless hours to the community service project she says is close to her heart, even with a full slate of classes and the extra effort she puts out to maintain her high scholastic standing at the Eagle Rock college.

Don't try to tell members of the Glendale College men's cross-country team that the light rains at the start of this week were the result of any combination of atmospheric conditions. They will tell you that Vaquero teammate Julio Serratos was to blame. When Serratos shows up for a 14-mile run in Griffith Park at 7 on a Sunday morning, they say, it is such a surprise that something has to give. "You see what happens?" Serratos recalls his teammates saying earlier this week.

When Glendale Community College celebrates its 70th anniversary today, the usual raft of dignitaries and alumni will wax nostalgic for a college that has grown into a 13,000-student learning mecca seven decades after graduating its first class of 12. But the school's growth has been measured in more ways than enrollment and acreage.

Enrollment at local community colleges is up slightly this fall, according to preliminary figures, despite deep budget cuts at many schools and a healthy job market--two factors that have historically kept students away. The trend came as a pleasant surprise to school officials.

As the cost of attending four-year universities continues to rise precipitously (private universities now charge as much as $22,200 for annual tuition), more individuals are exploring non-university options to obtain educations that can ready them for entry into the work force. Southern California's numerous community colleges offer relatively inexpensive ($13 per unit), two-year vocational certificate programs that prepare students for specific jobs.

The opposing coaches stood behind the portable batting practice screen, watching hitters rip line drives and fly balls toward the brilliant sky. There were still nearly two hours before the game on Tuesday, so the men soaked in the sun and talked shop. "[Our] games have literally been over by the third inning," said one. Said the other: "We are playing well, we really are." The coaches have known each other for years, but their experience with junior college baseball is vastly different.

Robert dos Remedios, former football coach at Burroughs High, will return to Glendale College as an assistant. "It's a done deal," dos Remedios said Saturday. "I'm going to coordinate the offense." Dos Remedios was a Vaquero assistant before heading the Burroughs program the past three seasons. Dos Remedios said Burroughs has selected assistant coach Keith Knoop as his successor, pending approval by the Burbank school board in February.
