'Explore IVCC' on Nov. 13

OGLESBY — Illinois Valley Community College will open its classrooms and labs for “Explore IVCC” from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 13.

This free event for prospective students, parents and community members begins with a panel of students as part of the welcome portion of the evening in the Dr. Mary Margaret Weeg Cultural Centre.

Attendees will then meet deans and faculty from various programs who will discuss majors and give tours of labs and classrooms. Current IVCC students will share their experiences and counselors will be available to discuss the college’s many academic programs. Other topics include financial aid, student support services, scholarships and transfer services. Free limited-edition IVCC T-shirts and food are provided to attendees.

"From industry-standard equipment in classrooms to creating relationships with local employers, IVCC has a lot of exciting opportunities to offer students," said Assistant Director of Admissions, Records, and Transfer Services Aseret Loveland. “Everything we will cover during ‘Explore’ is essential for individuals considering enrolling this spring; we encourage guests to attend the entire program.”

Spring registration begins Nov. 6.
