FLINT — College shopping is made easy at the Mott Community College 33rd Annual Regional College Fair from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 26, on the main campus at 1401 E. Court St.
Representatives from more than 50 colleges and universities from Michigan, as well as out-of-state, will be on hand to discuss admission requirements, programs of study, financial options and student life. MCC divisions will showcase their programs including the Regional Technology Center, Culinary Arts, Criminal Justice, Fine Arts, and Cosmetology.
“This is a great opportunity for area high school students and their families to explore college options,” said Dr. Tanya McFadden, vice president for Student Success at MCC. “To streamline their evening and give them more time to talk with college and university representatives we are encouraging students to go to www.gotocollegefairs.com to pre-register. This will save them time having to fill out interest cards. They can input their information once, and every college they select will receive their contact information.”
Special offerings from MCC include a free financial aid workshop at 7 p.m. in the Event Center, presented by the MCC Financial Aid Office, and information about dual enrollment at MCC for high school students interested in getting a jump start on their college career.
The colleges and universities scheduled to participate in the Regional College Fair include public and private schools. — L.R.
