Community Invited to Open House at LSC-Atascocita Center

Lone Star College-Atascocita CenterLone Star College-Atascocita Center will showcase its programs, academic courses and other services at the college’s Open House event on Thursday, May 23 from 5:30-7:30 p.m.

At the Open House, high school students, parents and community members will learn more about what the college has to offer by speaking directly to the departments in which they are interested.

“Our goal is to share all the great programming and services with our local community. Because we have only been open since August 2011, community members are interested in knowing how the center has grown and what educational opportunities are available close to home,” said David Baty, dean of LSC-Atascocita Center.

Attendees will have an opportunity to speak with college personnel regarding admissions, financial aid, workforce, continuing education courses, the Academy for Lifelong Learning, Discovery College and the University of Houston-Downtown’s baccalaureate program. The interaction will allow people to ask questions and gather a better knowledge of certifications and associate degrees that are offered at the center.

“I think many people will be surprised at the resources and offerings available through Lone Star College-Atascocita Center, which is located in their own neighborhood. The center offers a continuum of programming for kids through adults, Baty said. “This event will showcase these options along with our beautiful, state-of-the-art facility.”

In addition to learning more about the programs, attendees will receive give-away items and light refreshments will be served. LSC-Atascocita Center is located at 15903 West Lake Houston Parkway Houston, 77044. For more information on the Open House, call 832-775-0800.
