Today is the day! Future college students will have the opportunity to talk with representatives from more than 70 institutions and organizations during Kellogg Community College’s annual Calhoun County College Night, scheduled for 6:30 to 8 p.m. tonight, Monday, Nov. 2, at McCamly Plaza Hotel, 50 Capital Ave. SW, in Battle Creek.
The event is sponsored by KCC and is free and open to the public.
Meredith Stravers, director of Admissions at KCC, said most of the colleges to be represented are located in Michigan but the event also will include several out-of-state schools and representatives from various branches of the U.S. military.
“KCC’s College Night is the best opportunity for area students to connect with the schools they’re considering at one time, in one place,” Stravers said. “Students can ask questions, gather materials and make comparisons without having to schedule multiple meetings throughout the state.”
Financial aid information sessions will be held at 6:30 and 7:15 p.m. during the event. Stravers said students also will have the opportunity to meet with a number of organizations offering educational scholarships.
“This event is for anyone considering attending college,” Stravers said. “A lot of high school students attend, but this is really a great event for anyone interested in furthering their education.”
The Kellogg Company group ¡HOLA! and the Burma Center will be providing interpreters throughout the evening, and free parking for the duration of the event will be available in the parking ramp attached to the hotel and Kellogg Arena.
