QVCC to Host Open Houses for Prospective Students

Quinebaug Valley Community College is hosting two open houses for prospective students during the month of March.

The “What’s Your Game Plan?” Open House on Tuesday, March 6, at 6 pm, will offer the opportunity for students to become familiar with the college, its programs, faculty, and students. “It is the best way to discover why QVCC should be your choice for starting, continuing, or finishing your college education,” said Sarah Hendrick, associate director of admissions.

Attendees will hear from current and past students, meet student services staff, learn about degree, certificate, and noncredit programs, tour the college with student ambassadors, and browse the Spirol Art Gallery. Students may apply that night and the application fee will be waived.

On Thursday, March 22, the college’s Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center will hold an open house for students interested in pursuing a career in manufacturing. An information session will be held in the college auditorium at 6 pm, followed by guided tours of the 10,000 square foot training facility. There will be overviews of the Advanced Manufacturing Technology and the Mechatronics Automation Technician certificate programs. Attendees may also apply for free on the spot for the fall semester.
