‘Discover NSCC Day’ scheduled

Staff report

Northwest State Community College will offer the public an opportunity to explore the school’s many facets at Discover NSCC Day, Saturday, Nov. 3, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.

Terri Lavin, director of admissions, said the event provides exploration of how NSCC can help connect students to education, training, and, ultimately, access to career opportunities.

“Northwest State has tremendous variety for students of all ages,” Lavin said. “At Discover NSCC Day, the entire campus will be buzzing with activities. Discover NSCC Day is a great way for students to see for themselves how much fun learning can be, and how a NSCC education can lead to career opportunities providing family-sustaining wages, not to mention great post-NSCC transfer opportunities.”

Activities will include testing specimens in the medical assisting lab; investigating a mock crime scene,; escape rooms; 3-D printing and chemistry exploration; and observing simulations in the state-of-the-art nursing lab. Visitors can also apply for an opportunity to win one of two $500 scholarships.

Area businesses and advisors from the NSCC Advising Center will be available to discuss career and post-NSCC transfer opportunities. Representatives from financial aid, student services, student organizations, and other campus departments will be on hand to answer questions and share information.

The event is free and open to the public. For more information, visit NorthwestState.edu/discover-nscc or call 419-267-1320.
