KCC to sponsor annual College Night at Kellogg Arena Nov. 5

Future college students will have the opportunity to talk with representatives from more than 70 institutions and organizations during the annual Calhoun County College Night, beginning at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 5 at Kellogg Arena, 36 W. Hamblin Ave., Battle Creek.

The event is sponsored by Kellogg Community College and is free and open to the public.

Meredith Stravers, director of Admissions at KCC, said most of the colleges represented are located in the state but that the event will also include a handful of out-of-state schools, as well as representatives from various branches of the U.S. military.

“College Night is a great opportunity for future students to connect with the institutions they are considering attending,” Stravers said. “Students can ask questions, gather materials, and compare many different institutions.”

Financial aid information sessions will be held at 6:30 and 7:15 p.m. during the event, and Spanish interpreters will be available throughout the evening for those who need them.

Students will also have the opportunity during the event to meet with a number of organizations offering educational scholarships.

“We see lots of high school students, but it’s open for any person interested in attending college,” Stravers said.
