Wilkes has upgraded many of its facilities including the Bumgarner Gymnasium, new athletic offices, fitness center and a refurbished weight room.
As a dynamic institution, Wilkes Community College is engaged in a continuous process of updating programs and services to best meet the needs of the community. These efforts include enhancing teaching and learning and creating programs for the 21st century, improving services to students, and facilitating connections within the community.
