SU President Dr. Suzanne Shipley and BRCTC President Dr. Peter Checkovich signed the official documents at a morning ceremony that drew approximately 25 people-including representatives from both schools.
Blue Ridge Community and Technical College President Dr. Peter Checkovich, left, and Shepherd University President Dr. Suzanne Shipley on Monday signed an agreement aimed at helping students graduate in four years by taking only the necessary classes - even upon transferring from BRCTC to SU.
Checkovich said this advancement is also beneficial because it reflects popular professions teaching and nursing-that also offer graduates a good shot at getting a job.
"We're opening a pipeline for students who want to start here but maybe have to be in a degree program to qualify for financial aid. If a student doesn't know what they want to do, a lot of times they list general studies. But we did some surveys with students in general studies and a lot of them said they would love to go into teaching if it was possible. So we wanted to get that option going with Shepherd, and it is working out just great," Checkovich said.

Blue Ridge Community and Technical College President Peter G. Checkovich gives faculty and staff a tour of the school's new campus building Friday.

The three-story, academic/administration building on the college's new 46-acre campus at 13650 Apple Harvest Drive west of Martinsburg is on track to be ready for the beginning of fall semester classes on Aug. 20, Checkovich said.
College administrators are planning to move from leased first-floor space in the Berkeley County administration building at 400 W. Stephen St. in July, he said.
The building is about 20,000-square-feet larger than the leased space, and Checkovich pointed to multiple places for students to study, gather and sleep.
"And they do sleep," Checkovich said.
Just beyond the building's welcome desk, an Internet cafe taking shape in the building will seat more than 70 students, Checkovich said. A place for students to eat and a bookstore will be operated nearby.
While lacking furnishings and finishing touches, most of the building's interior walls appeared to be painted. Tile and carpet flooring was in varying stages of completion.
About the only significant challenge that will not be addressed by the first day of classes will be the lack of a left-turn lane that is needed on Apple Harvest Drive (W.Va. 45), Checkovich said.
Until the road is widened, he said the college may need assistance with traffic direction at the campus entrance.
Trees will be planted along the entrance road to the campus, and some large rocks unearthed by site preparation will become part of landscaping in front of the building, Checkovich said.
