Deptford Twp.–High school students and parents are invited to make their move and score big during Gloucester County College’s Open House on Thursday, March 7 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. in the Physical Education Center.
Competitive degree programs matching academic majors to future careers allow prospective students to learn more about educational opportunities and transfer options to four-year universities to help them go far in the game of life.
According to Admissions/Recruitment Coordinator Megan Ruttler, this popular informational event brings students together with faculty members, admissions personnel, activity representatives, coaches and current athletes to provide advice on how to make preparing for college a positive experience.
Those who attend will learn about the Dual Advantage enrollment partnerships between GCC and area universities and may discuss transfer options with representatives from various four-year institutions. Visitors can explore the College’s seven academic divisions that comprise its 70 degree programs and certification offerings—Allied Health and Nursing; Business Studies; Health, Physical Education and Recreation; Liberal Arts; Law and Justice; Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics; and Continuing Education. In addition, information sessions for NJSTARS and Financial Aid are also scheduled. Campus tours give individuals a glimpse of GCC’s state-of-the-art facilities.
“This gives prospective students a chance to actually meet the dean, professors or students involved in a major they are interested in,” said Ruttler. “Visitors can talk to existing students to hear about their experiences and can gain more in-depth information about a program of study that they might not otherwise receive when speaking to a recruiter at their high school or college fair.”
