Hagerstown Community College will hold a campus-wide open house on Saturday, October 24, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
Attendees will be able to meet with faculty representing more than 100 high-quality programs of study, learn how to plan ahead and pay for college, learn about HCC’s early college options for high school students, and take a guided tour of campus or visit buildings on their own. Programs and demonstrations will be repeated at each location throughout the day.
The new Student Center will serve as a hub of activity for the event. In addition to presentations on the college admissions process, financial aid and scholarships, transfer programs, student support services, and academic advising, visitors can watch students play volleyball on the new sand court, grab a cup of coffee in the new Hawk Café or lunch in the Hilltop Grill, visit the new Campus Store, sit for a caricature drawing with a visiting artist, and enjoy shaved ice from the Kona Ice truck.
Special program activities include a dance rehearsal and live theater set build, a chance to see inside one of HCC’s driver-training tractor trailers, historical artifact displays, and medical, scientific, and electronic/computer lab tours and demonstrations. Information will also be available on non-credit courses and programs, including College for Kids.
Attendees will have the chance to enter a drawing to win one of six iPad minis.
