Future college students will have the opportunity to talk with representatives from more than 70 educational institutions and community organizations during Kellogg Community College’s annual Calhoun County College Night, scheduled for 6 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 1, at Full Blast, 35 Hamblin Ave. 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. Representatives from the Battle Creek Community Foundation and the Legacy Scholars program will also be available.

“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.”

In addition to representatives from colleges and organizations located around the state, representatives from more than a dozen academic departments at KCC will be set up on “KCC Row” during the event, including:

  • Business
  • Computer-Aided Drafting and Design
  • Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA)
  • Computer Engineering Technology
  • Computer Programming
  • Dental Hygiene
  • Early Childhood Education
  • Emergency Medical Services
  • Graphic Design
  • Math and Science
  • Music
  • Nursing
  • Photography and Multimedia
  • Physical Therapist Assistant
  • Radiography
  • Spanish

The event will also include a KCC-led financial aid information session, and attendees 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.”

Free parking for the duration of the event will be available in the parking ramp attached to Kellogg Arena.

KCC Transfer Fair

Calhoun County College Night follows KCC’s annual Transfer Fair for KCC students, which will run from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 1, in the Kellogg Room in the Student Center on campus at 450 North Ave., Battle Creek.

Featuring admissions representatives from many four-year colleges and universities – including Grand Valley State University, Michigan State University, Western Michigan University and many others, in addition to U.S. military recruiters – the Transfer Fair is a great way for students graduating from KCC or planning to transfer their credits to gain valuable information about four-year institutions.
