HOUSTON (Jan. 13, 2010) – High school graduates and non-traditional students are encouraged to attend Lone Star College-Kingwood’s open house on Saturday, Feb. 13 from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Student Fine Arts Center. Interested students and parents will learn first-hand regarding programs offered at the campus. Attendees are asked to RSVP for the event by Tuesday, Feb. 9.
“I want to make the students feel like LSC-Kingwood is their home. We are here to help them in any way that we can in bridging the gap between high school and college. In addition to working with recent high school graduates, we also want to start an initiative to bring in and make non-traditional students aware and comfortable with our campus and the programs we offer,” Thomas Sneed, coordinator of Outreach and Recruitment, said.
The free open house will feature a variety of programs. Prospective students will receive a tour of the campus and get details on the admission process, financial aid, and student life. Information will also be given from specific departments such as Behavioral Sciences, Disability Services, Continuing Education, Distance Education and more.
