Beaufort County Community College's annual College Night is set for Wednesday, Oct. 22, from 6:30 until 8:00 p.m., in the Multi-purpose Room of Building 10 on the BCCC campus.
College Night is an excellent opportunity for high school students and others in the community interested in attending BCCC to learn more about opportunities available at the college, according to Daniel Wilson, BCCC admissions and recruitment director.
It is also a good chance for BCCC college transfer students to meet with representatives from four-year colleges and universities to discuss admission requirements and programs available on their campuses, Wilson said.
"Students interested in attending BCCC or transferring from BCCC to another college or university do not want to miss this event,"
Wilson said. "As well as visiting with representatives of BCCC, attendees will be able to meet one-on-one with representatives from over 40 institutions from North Carolina."
Admission is free of charge and is open to anyone in eastern North Carolina thinking about starting or returning to college.
Representatives from several area community colleges and most public and private four-year schools across the state have been invited to attend, Wilson said.
Among them are Barton College, Beaufort County Community College, Belmont Abbey College, Campbell University, Cape Fear Community College, Catawba College, Chowan University, the College Foundation of North Carolina, East Carolina University, Elizabeth City State University, Elon University, Fayetteville State University, Johnson and Wales University, Liberty University, Living Arts College, Livingstone College, Louisburg College, Meredith College, Methodist University, Mid-Atlantic Christian University, Miller-Motte College, Mount Olive College, Nashville Auto Diesel College, N.C.
