LSC-Atascocita Center Invites Community to Harvest FestWith the changing of seasons, Lone Star College-Atascocita Center invites the community to attend its second Harvest Fest on Saturday, Nov. 9 from 10 a.m.-12 p.m.

The center’s event is designed to inform the community about all of the college-related services it offers and to provide a family-fun and safe environment for children. This event is free.

“Harvest Fest’s purpose is to offer fun activities for families in the local community while getting them acquainted with the center. Our hope is that more people in the community will know we exist and what we have to offer locally while the kids have some fun,” said David Baty, dean of LSC-Atascocita Center.

Activities at the Harvest Fest include fingerprinting by the Harris County Sherriff’s Office, pumpkin toss, pumpkin decorating, vendors and more.

LSC-Atascocita Center, which opened in 2011, is a stand-alone campus that provides a variety of services for traditional and non-traditional students who are looking to pursue a higher education degree, acquire training for their jobs or participate in leisure learning. In partnership with the University of Houston-Downtown, students can earn a Bachelor’s in Business Administration degree in General Business entirely at LSC-Atascocita Center. In addition to offering college courses and programs, the center is also the home to Humble Independent School District’s Quest Early College High School.
