Bring your post-high-school goals into clearer focus by exploring higher educational and career options during “Picture Yourself @ Parkland”, the spring campus-wide open house scheduled for Friday, March 8, from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. in the College Center.
Parkland faculty and staff will be on hand at a wide variety of informational booths, including college admissions, financial aid, academic majors, student life, counseling and advising, student academic support, and more. High school students, high school counselors, and parents of college-bound students are especially encouraged to attend.
“If a student is undecided about what to do after high school, this is a really worthwhile event to attend,” said Mary Kay Smith, Parkland Student Services Advisor. “Parkland College not only allows these students the freedom to explore different career paths but makes such exploration much more affordable than they would experience at a four-year institution without a set career path.
“The best career choice awaits every college-bound student out there; it’s just a matter of getting a better focus on what those choices are, so we’re ready to help them see the big picture for their future,” Smith said.
