Kishwaukee College invites all community members interested in exploring education at the college level to Discover KC from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday in the Student Center on campus.
“This event is for anyone who is interested in pursuing a college education, from soon-to-be high school grads to adults who are returning to school,” Tricia Wagner, director of Adult Education at Kish College and a member of the Discover KC planning committee, said in a news release. “Kishwaukee College offers programs for everyone, whatever their plans. Discover KC is a great way for the community to see how we can help you achieve your goals!”
The event will have a fair-like atmosphere, with information on academic and student support programs available at the college as well as refreshments and activities.
“We want people to feel comfortable bringing their families with them to Discover KC,” Wagner said in the release. “If you want direct information, we have staff available to help you, but the day is also a great way for community members to come and enjoy our beautiful campus while they find out just how much we have to offer!” The event will include chair massages, door prizes, a tour of the greenhouse, and a raffle drawing for a three-credit hour tuition waiver.
