Concordia campus

Cloud County Community College was founded in Concordia in 1965 and began classes in the Concordia Junior-Senior High School. The college moved to its present site in 1968. The architecture of the main campus is that of "pods" which are designed to evoke the rolling hills of the area. The athletics team is known as the Thunderbirds (men) and Lady Thunderbirds (women). CCCC was the junior college national champion in 1980 in women's basketball. Housing is provided by 13 campus apartments located in "T-Bird Village" across a street from the main campus building. CCCC is home to the first Wind Energy Technology program in Kansas and uses both wind and geo-thermal energy to operate portions of the campus electrical system.

Geary County campus

Geary County Campus Sign, 2011

The Geary County Campus (GCC) is located in Junction City. Hosting primarily a non-traditional and diverse student population, the campus offers several career and transfer programs. Since the college is near Fort Riley, it serves military veterans, active duty military members, and their families. With a variety of day, evening, and weekend course offerings, students taking classes have the privilege of flexible class scheduling. Along with its service to Fort Riley, home of the Big Red One, this commuter campus serves almost 600 students from the surrounding area and provides transferable courses to regional institutions such as Kansas State University and Manhattan Area Technical College. The unique nature of this branch campus enables it to operate under the oversight of a Campus Dean, seventeen full-time faculty and staff and almost forty adjunct faculty, many of whom also teach for Kansas State University and other educational entities in the area. The GCC has an active Phi Theta Kappa honor society, TRiO services, adult basic education, and a chapter of Student Senate. Cloud County Community College is a Service Member Opportunity College (SOC).
