DCCC Offers College Options at April 25 Open House

April 7, 2015 – Graduating seniors as well as high school students interested in starting college while still in high school can learn more about their college options at an open house offered by Davidson County Community College from 9 a.m. to noon on April 25 in the Mendenhall Building on the Davidson Campus. The event, open to the community, is geared toward students and their parents or guardians.

Open house attendees are invited to take a campus tour, meet faculty members from specific programs, hear from current students and explore opportunities to join campus clubs and organizations, learn how continuing education programs can provide new job skills, get help completing the DCCC application and FAFSA financial aid form and meet with a career counselor.

“Choosing a college is a big decision, and the open house offers the opportunity for us to share with the community valuable information about attending college as well as the more than 50 degree programs available here at DCCC,” says Kevin Lineberry, interim dean of student services. “We have a lot to offer not only to upcoming graduates but to underclassmen and incoming high school students who may want to consider enrolling in college classes while still in high school.”
