ENTERPRISE – Enterprise State Community College has launched its annual Senior Visit season for Spring 2018, with several exciting events scheduled throughout the next couple months across the college and multiple high school campuses.
Nearly 500 seniors from 17 schools throughout the Wiregrass area are scheduled to visit ESCC in January and February for an ultimate student experience that includes tours, financial aid information, programs, social media challenges, entertainment, and lunch.
The visits provide high school students an opportunity to learn everything they need to know about choosing where to go to college, as well as a chance to learn an extensive amount of information about what is offered at ESCC.
“This is a great time for our students to connect with us here at Enterprise State Community College and the Alabama Aviation Center on our turf, so that one day this can possibly be their home for cutting-edge, quality, education,” Matt Rodgers, ESCC President, said.
Students register to attend senior visits with their high school guidance counselor. The first of many senior visits was Tuesday, January 23, when students from Daleville and Wicksburg high schools visited ESCC.
Upcoming dates are as follows:
January 18 – Ariton – GW Long (rescheduled for a later date)
January 23 – Daleville – Wicksburg
January 25 – New Brockton – Kinston – Zion Chapel
February 8 – Adult Ed students
February 12 – Elba – Goshen – Slocomb
February 13 – Geneva County – Samson – Geneva
February 14 – Charles Henderson – Pike County
In addition to the scheduled senior visits, multiple events in which ESCC will invite high school students on campus or actually visit the high schools with a team of ESCC/AAC faculty and staff are scheduled throughout February.
ESCC will be at Enterprise High School Monday and Tuesday, February 5 and 6. AAC representatives will host a senior visit at Carroll High School on Wednesday, Feb. 21. A program fair, in which ninth, tenth, and 11th graders can visit the college while seniors in the area take the WorkKeys exam, will take place on the Enterprise campus the morning of Wednesday, Feb. 21.
Parents will have the opportunity to attend a special “How to Become a Boll Weevil” session, where they, too, will learn the important steps their student will take to become a Boll Weevil, and participate in a parents-only campus tour.
All events scheduled at ESCC are free and open to the public, but registration is required. Please register with your high school guidance counselor, or call (334) 347-2623 ext. 2235 for more information. You may also email firstname.lastname@example.org.
