KRC to start search for new food vendor

KPC’s Kenai River Cafe is set to change management of the food service in the upcoming fall semester that begins August 29. The search for a new vendor will begin with the release of a Request for Proposals the first week of April.

When released, the RFP will be available from the homepage of the KPC website in the “news” section. Hard copies of the packet will also be available in KRC Campus Services and can be requested by sending an email to Jennifer Anderson, director of administrative services (jeanderson7@kpc.alaska.edu). KPC is soliciting proposals that offer a variety of foods, fast service and competitive pricing for students, staff and faculty. The kitchen space is approximately 450 square feet and is fully equipped with a full suite of modern, commercial grade appliances, including an espresso machine. Selection of a contractor will be based on each of the following criteria: understanding of the project, experience and qualifications, proposed menu and price/cost proposal. Each area will be assigned a weighted value to determine the ranking of each proposal. As part of the RFP requirements, prospective vendors must attend a mandatory site visit/pre-proposal conference on April 11. The deadline for submitting the RFP will be April 29.

Summer semester registration underway

Registration for the summer is currently open to returning, admitted KPC students. Public registration opens online Feb. 29. Summer course offerings are available from the KPC website via the searchable schedule and registration is accessed at UAOnline.

KRC student government providing video testimonials for legislators

The KRC Student Union recently announced that they will not be traveling to Juneau for their traditional, annual trip to attend legislative conferences.

In an effort to reduce costs and to provide an overview of KPC students’ opinions on the University of Alaska’s fiscal situation, they are gathering video testimonials from KRC students.

They are encouraging participating students to express their opinions on a variety of topics important to the college, including possible budget cuts.

“We made a difficult choice. We were all eagerly anticipating advocating for the university in person in Juneau. We decided to use video technology to bring a larger voice and a broader representation of campus views to our legislators.

We wanted to increase our advocacy for students using an innovative and creative process. While a sad decision, we think this is just one step toward Shaping Alaska’s Future,” said the Student Union in a group letter addressed to legislators.

KPC’s Kenai River Campus will host their annual Advice and a Slice event from 1-4 p.m. on April 1 in the McLane Building. Current and prospective students and parents are encouraged to attend this event to connect with professors and explore academic majors.

The event is designed to provide an overview of KPC’s wide-variety of degree and certificate programs and to highlight the friendly, inclusive atmosphere that KPC prides itself on.

Representatives from various departments will be on hand to offer information about financial aid, campus clubs and academic programs. Potential students and parents are invited to take a tour of the KRC Residence Hall. Participants will enjoy free pizza and can enter to win $500 tuition waivers.
