Kirtland Community College (Kirtland) is hosting a college night on Thursday, October 13 from 6-7:30 p.m. Representatives from approximately 40 colleges and universities will be on-hand to provide information to people interested in attending college next fall.
High school students, parents and others are encouraged to attend the annual event in the Student Center on Kirtland’s main campus near Roscommon. College Night 2011 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,” said Marianne Kuzimski, student recruitment specialist at Kirtland.
In addition to Kirtland and M-TEC at Kirtland-Gaylord, representatives from Michigan State University, Ferris State University, Oakland University, Saginaw Valley State University, Delta College and several military branches are scheduled to be in attendance. Financial aid advisers will be available to offer assistance as well.
Kuzimski adds, “Kirtland’s College Night is a great opportunity for our local communities to visit our campus and talk to Kirtland representatives about our programs firsthand. It also offers a chance for the community members to see what other colleges and universities are doing and what they have to offer. “
Annually, more than 3,000 students attend a variety of certificate and two-year degree programs at Kirtland’s three locations – near Roscommon, the M-TEC at Kirtland-Gaylord and in West Branch. Kirtland offers a wide range of online certificate and degree programs as well, all of which can be completed from home.
