Tour campus, learn about programs at 'Meet MCC'
Deciding what to study in school, or wondering how to take your next step?
Learn more about the programs, certificates, and resources available at McHenry County College at "Meet MCC" from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 22, at the college, 8900 Route 14 in Crystal Lake.
The event takes the place of the college's annual MCC Night, which was traditionally held each fall.
During this open house format event, parents and prospective students can chat with faculty and staff about career paths and programs available at MCC and meet with representatives from Admissions, Financial Aid, Student Activities, Access and Disability Services, and more.
"We know that making a college decision can be overwhelming, so we're available to walk students through the process step-by-step and help them plan for their long-term goals," said Amy Carzoli, director of enrollment services at MCC.
"During this event, students will have the opportunity to make important face-to-face connections and ask their individual questions. It's also a perfect way for those unsure about their next steps to see all our available options and pathways of study."
The event is for all types of students, including returning adults and transfer students.
"MCC has guaranteed transfer agreements with more than 20 colleges and universities, and a large percentage of our students go on to transfer," said Carzoli. "Our advisers can help you figure out how to start at MCC, then finish your bachelor's degree at the school of your choice."
In addition to information about degrees, certificates, and resources, prospective students are also invited to attend an interactive tour of the campus.
"It's a great opportunity for students to get a feel for the campus and envision the skills they'll be developing here," Carzoli said.
Information about study abroad, dual credit, veterans services, scholarships, student life, and athletics will also be available. Attendees will have the chance to receive prizes, giveaways, and view demonstrations.
All attendees will receive a waiver code for a free MCC application.
