Kirtland Community College will host a college fair on Wednesday, Oct. 4 from 6-7:30 p.m. at the Grayling location, 4880 W. 4-Mile Road. Representatives from more than 40 colleges and universities and branches of the armed services will be on-hand to provide information for anyone interested in attending college next fall.
High school students, parents and others are encouraged to attend this annual event. College Fair 2017 offers students and parents the opportunity to talk to college representatives and collect information needed to make informed choices. “We encourage families, not just high school students, to attend and get involved in education decisions,” says Ryan Madis, student recruitment specialist at Kirtland.
In addition to Kirtland Community College, representatives from colleges and universities across the state are scheduled to attend, including: Central Michigan University, Ferris State University, Lake Superior State University, Michigan State University, Oakland University, Saginaw Valley State University and the University of Michigan. Representatives from several military branches are also scheduled to be in attendance. This collaborative event provides an opportunity for prospective students and their parents to learn more about a variety of school and career opportunities available both locally and across the state. Financial aid advisors will provide tips on making college more affordable at a Financial Aid One Stop, and Kirtland academic advisors will provide valuable college planning assistance.
“Kirtland’s College Night is a great opportunity for our local communities to visit Kirtland and talk to us about our programs firsthand. Kirtland has the lowest in-district tuition rates in northern Michigan,” says Madis. “Students and their parents don’t always realize all of the general ed and pre-requisite courses can be completed at Kirtland at a fraction of the cost. You can save money whether you’re pursuing professional or occupational trades training, considering associate degree options or preparing to transfer to a four year college.”
