FLINT — The Ballenger Field House at Mott Community College will be buzzing Oct. 25, when hundreds of students from across the region will flock to the Flint campus for MCC’s Regional College Fair.
Mott Community College’s 29th Annual Regional College Fair is scheduled for 6-7:30 p.m. in the Ballenger Field House on the MCC main campus in Flint, 1401 E. Court St. This event is free and open to the public.
For details about the MCC Regional College Fair, please call 810-762-0438. The Office of Admissions and Recruitment at MCC organizes the Regional College Fair each year, providing students with an excellent opportunity to gather information about college life, directly from officials representing dozens of post-secondary institutions in Michigan as well as out-of-state.
Representatives from a broad range of institutions will be on hand again this year to discuss admission requirements, programs of study, financial options, college events and activities – essentially everything students and parents need to know about the institutions they represent.
MCC’s Regional College Fair features morning, afternoon and evening sessions, each tailored to meet the needs of different types of students. Prospective students, current students and parents are all welcome to attend the 6 p.m. program, traditionally referred to as College Night.
