College Night Brings Statewide Reps to Students | Beaufort County Now | Prospective college students will have a chance to talk to representatives of 45 private and public colleges and universities at College Night at Beaufort County Community College

Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)
Press Release:

    WASHINGTON, N.C.     Prospective college students will have a chance to talk to representatives of 45 private and public colleges and universities at College Night at Beaufort County Community College. Parents and students can come to Building 10 on the BCCC campus from 6:30-8:00 p.m. on Thursday, October 19 with questions about programs offered by institutions around North Carolina.

    Public universities such as East Carolina, Winston-Salem State, NC State, NC Central, UNC-Chapel Hill, Appalachian State University and UNC Wilmington will be on hand. Community colleges attending include Wake Tech, Edgecombe, Lenoir and, of course, Beaufort County. Private colleges will also be attending, including Salem College, Shaw University, Elon University and Campbell University. Students who are starting to apply to colleges will want to check out the opportunities available both near and far.

    Representatives from the College Fund of North Carolina (CFNC) will be in attendance to answer general questions about financing college. Many students are still making up their minds about what kinds of program they would like to pursue. Families are discussing whether it makes sense for their children to attend a small private university or to start off at a community college. Families who have not considered college might find a program that is both affordable and appropriate for their child.

    According to the Pew Research Center, millennials with college degrees under 32 years old are on average earning $17,500 more than their peers with only a high school degree. In fact, the average wages of workers with only a high school degree have fallen in recent years where the earnings of college graduates have risen.

    While graduation seems far away, students need to start filling out applications for both universities and financial aid to meet approaching deadlines.
