Mid-Plains Community College is giving prospective students and their families even more opportunities to experience its programs first-hand.

 

The college will launch a series of Visit Days this month to showcase its campuses, offerings and services. Among other things, participants will be able to tour their programs of interest, sit in on a class, meet instructors, join in hands-on projects, learn about the various services MPCC offers and meet new friends through fun activities led by current Mid-Plains students.

 

Specialists from a variety of departments will be available to answer questions and provide information about financial aid, housing and credit transfer among many other topics.

 

“Visit days are a great opportunity as they offer a different take on the typical campus visit and include several activities students might otherwise have to plan individually,” said Mindy Hope, area director of recruiting and admissions. “They provide a more complete perspective on what it’s like to be a college student. Visit Days let prospective students experience a lot of what the college has to offer, from academic programs, instructors and potential classmates to student organizations, residence halls and life outside of the classroom. Visitors get a complete view of the college’s resources in a single day.”

 

Anyone thinking about taking college classes is encouraged to attend. Lunch will be provided, and all prospective students will receive a free hoodie.

 

Visit Days are scheduled for Oct. 16, Nov. 20, Jan. 22 and Feb. 26 in North Platte and McCook from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day. Check in will begin at 9 a.m. RSVPs are required at https://campus.mpcc.edu/ICS/RSVP/.
