Many have students have heard the common question, “What are your plans after high school or college?”

To some, the answer may come easy. For others, it might not.

MCCC is hosting College Night from 6-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 12, in the H Building.

College Night is an opportunity for students to start exploring the next steps in their educational careers, said Joe Verkennes, director of Marketing and Communications.

“College Night hosts a number of colleges from all over the place: regionally, nationally and locally,” Verkennes said.

At the event, each university sets up informational displays, Verkennes said. It also provides students with the opportunity to meet admissions recruiters, ask questions about admission processes, and find out  which programs the universities have to offer.

Verkennes said there will be over 60 colleges at the event.

“It’s essentially a recruiting event and information event for college students, high school students and essentially anyone,” Verkennes said.

Joyce Haver, professor of counseling, said College Night often opens students’ eyes to the possibilities beyond MCCC.

“It’s a wake-up call,” said Haver. “Students don’t think beyond two or three years.”

Haver encourages students to attend to begin the first step toward their educational future.
