FLINT — The Ballenger Field House at Mott Community College will be buzzing on Oct. 24, when hundreds of students from across the region will flock to the Flint campus for MCC’s Regional College Fair.
The College’s 30th 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 information about MCC’s Regional College Fair, please call 810-762-0438.
The Office of Admissions and Recruitment at MCC presents 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 colleges and universities will be available to discuss admission requirements, programs of study, financial options, college events and activities – everything students and parents need to know about the institutions they represent. In addition, a Financial Aid Workshop will be offered again this year at 6:30 p.m.
New offerings at the college fair include a college official from Hawaii representing Hawaii Pacific University, a representative from the Michigan Department of Treasury sharing information about state-funded grants and scholarships, and information on dual enrollment opportunities for area high school students to jump start their college careers.
MCC’s Regional College Fair features morning, afternoon and evening sessions, each tailored to meet the needs of different types of students — high school students, prospective students and current students.
The morning event, College Day, scheduled 9-11a.m., is reserved for high school students who will be bused to campus. College Day is designed as part of a regular class day for these students.
An afternoon session, the Transfer Fair at noon-2 p.m., is specifically designed for current MCC students planning to transfer to four-year colleges and universities. — G.G.
