Guards at lawless prison can earn criminal justice credit

Columbia College in Columbia, Mo., is saying goodbye to Puerto Rico and hello to Guantanamo Bay.

The college, a major provider of college courses on U.S. military bases, will hold its final graduation at the Roosevelt Road Naval Station in Puerto Rico next month. Since 1992, the college has offered courses at the base, which the Navy is closing in response to Puerto Ricans' objections to its use of the island of Vieques as a bombing range.

Meanwhile, beginning today, the college will start offering courses at the naval base at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba, where hundreds of terror suspects are being detained.



Guantanamo Bay:
U.S. prison beyond U.S. law



With the establishment of the prison camp, the military presence there has been bolstered. Mike Randerson, head of the college's extended studies division, estimated that a total of about 4,000 sailors, soldiers and Marines are stationed at the base.

Those service people, their dependents and the base's civilian contractors make up the potential student pool there.

Guantanamo students will be able to combine "face-to-face" courses, taught by part-time teachers, with selections from the college's 200 online courses to earn bachelor's degrees in general studies, business administration or criminal justice administration.

Randerson said he expected 115 to 130 students to register for the first session and eventually about 200 to be taking classes at the base at any time.

Columbia College enrolls about 10,000 students, about a quarter of them at its campus in Columbia and the rest scattered among 30 "extended campuses," most at military bases.

Puerto Rico was and Guantanamo Bay will be the college's only location outside the mainland.

I love the little college town of Columbia. They are also very pro pot and
the reasoning is that many studants there getting busted loose their studant loans and drivers liscense's parents are getting tired of spending a life time of savings on a college thats gonna expell the studants for pot charges. They narrowly missed having enough votes to get it passed. Im sure they will make it this yr. peace ~Lilli~
