Lone Star College-Kingwood invites the community to attend its Open House event on Saturday, April 22 from 10 a.m.-1 p.m.
Held in the John E. Pickelman Student-Conference Center (SCC), potential students, parents and community members will have an opportunity to speak one-on-one with the various credit, workforce, continuing education and student service programs that are offered at the college.
“The purpose of Open House is to welcome the community to LSC-Kingwood. With more than 60 program areas of study, we have something that suits all educational needs,” said Nicole Keenan, director of admissions and outreach. “Some of our programs are designed for students who will ultimately pursue a bachelor’s degree at a four-year institution and we also have programs designed for students who desire a short-term training program allowing them to quickly enter the workforce.”
Participating departments will provide handouts as well as conduct demonstrations and visitors are invited to take a tour of the campus. Newly enrolled students are eligible to win scholarships, Fitbits and gift cards; must be present to win.
“We offer noncredit courses for students wishing to obtain a new skill but not college credit. We even have a program in the summer for our younger population called Discovery College. No matter what your age or educational level, we have something for you,” Keenan said. “Attendees will also have the opportunity to explore program majors, obtain information on financial assistance, apply to the campus and if eligible, register for classes this upcoming semester.”
