Spartanburg, S.C. – Spartanburg Community College (SCC) will host a free open house drop-in on Tuesday, March 20 from 4:00-7:00 pm in the Dan Lee Terhune Student Services Building located on the SCC central campus in Spartanburg. The event is open to students, parents and career seekers interested in SCC’s academic programs and student services.
“Our spring open house is a great opportunity for anyone interested in attending college to experience SCC first-hand – visit our campus and learn more about everything that Spartanburg Community College offers. Whether you’re still in high school, already attending college or considering college for the first time, SCC has something for you,” explains Lynn Dale, SCC’s interim director of admissions. “Students today have so many choices now that it’s more important than ever to research and make sure the college you select is the best option for you — personally, professionally and financially.
“Not only will we showcase our many academic offerings, but attendees can also experience SCC personally by meeting faculty members and current students who can speak to specific programs, career opportunities and share why they chose SCC,” adds Dale. “All the things that make SCC a smart choice for a college education – affordability, convenience, transfer options, accreditations, our programs of study that lead to career success for our graduates– will be featured at the open house.”
Attendees will also learn about the admissions and financial aid processes, and faculty and staff will be available to answer questions and provide information on more than 100 programs of study, as well as support services that help students make the most of their educational experience, such as career planning, counseling, student disability services, student activities, advising and tutoring. Tours of the central campus, classrooms and state-of-the-art laboratories will also be available for those who are interested. Attendees will also be eligible for door prizes, including SCC t-shirts and a $500 SCC scholarship from the SCC Foundation.
