Parkland College's annual Spring Open House will include a new Majors Fair and new presentations for older adult college students. The open house is set for March 13 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Parkland Student Union.
High school students, counselors, and community members are especially encouraged to tour the campus, get questions answered from faculty and staff, and learn about available programs, degrees, and certificates. Information on admissions, financial aid, trending careers, the Parkland Pathway to Illinois, and campus clubs and organizations will be provided.
The new Majors Fair will benefit students who need help selecting an academic discipline in college. Another supplement to this year's event are breakout sessions for the older adult student. These sessions will occur around the noon hour and include the following topics:
- Adult-centric Ways to Pay for College
- Online Classes: Delivery and Options
- Putting Your Existing Credits to Work
Additionally, Parkland's open house will feature sessions on Dual Credit and finding scholarships for the traditional-aged student.
"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."
