Future students, parents, current students and the community are invited to attend Victoria College's Information Night on Tuesday.
Students and their parents will have an opportunity to explore the college's certificate and degree programs, workforce training and transfer options - all under one roof.
"We're providing access to technical displays and hands-on activities related to many of our programs so prospective students can experience the kinds of things they'd be learning about in college," said director of pre-college programs, Melissa Robinson.
Additionally, information booths will be manned by instructors and current students, allowing visitors to ask questions about the classes and explore the opportunities available within the various fields.
Attendees can get information regarding:
Admissions and registration
Certificates and associate degrees
Financial aid and scholarship
Campus life and student organizations
Those who are interested in finding out more about the college's vocational nursing program or the associate degree-nursing program may attend a one-hour breakout session focusing on these special-admissions programs. Each program will conduct a breakout session at 6 p.m. and 7 p.m.
Guided campus tours will be offered, and dinner will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
