PIQUA — Edison State Community College invites community members, area high school students and their parents to an open house on Thursday, March 2 from 6-8 p.m. in the Robinson Theater on the Piqua campus.
In addition to exploring over 30 of Edison State’s academic programs, those in attendance will also have the chance to meet with professors, tour the state-of-the-art facilities, and attend breakout sessions to learn more about internship, scholarship, and financial aid opportunities.
High school students in attendance are also encouraged to learn more about College Credit Plus, which affords them higher learning opportunities at little to no cost. Guests can also speak with university partners about transferring credits earned at Edison State to a four-year college.
“This event is a great opportunity for folks to see for themselves all Edison State has to offer,” said Christina Raterman, Edison State enrollment manager. “Attendees will have the opportunity to connect one-on-one with faculty in all of our academic areas, which is such a huge benefit.”
A comprehensive list of career programs will be highlighted including, Business, Computer Information Technology, Engineering Technology, Health Science, Industrial Management and Technology, and Social and Legal Services.
Participants can also learn more about Edison State’s 2+2 University Transfer Degrees, which allows students to complete the first two years of a bachelor’s degree at Edison State before transferring to their university of choice.
Industry leaders will also be in attendance to speak one-on-one with students and parents about the need for skilled workers in the Miami Valley.
“We are looking forward to the opportunity to connect with families and showcasing our wonderful college,” added Raterman.
