“This event gives students the opportunity to tour the college, to get an overview of the support services available to them, and to receive information about financial aid options, student clubs, and so much more,” said Janet Munson, director for enrollment services. “It’s also a great way for them to start meeting other students, staff and faculty. We have fun with it!”

There is still time to register for classes. The 16-week session and the first 8-week session of classes of the fall semester begin Monday, August 25, and the 12-week session begins Monday, September 22. The FAD (Final Add Day) is the Friday before each session begins.
