ARCHBOLD – Nearly 50 years ago, Northwest State Community College began with a graduating class of 66. Since then, the College has grown to offer over 70 degree and certificate programs to a campus of more than 4,000 students.
While some things have changed over that time, the importance of a strong education with hands-on skills training remains vital. Discover NSCC Day on Saturday, March 24 from 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. can help area residents explore the available career training and education options available at Northwest State.
“Northwest State has tremendous variety for students of all ages,” said Terri Lavin, director of admissions. “At Discover NSCC Day, the entire campus will be buzzing with activities. Discover NSCC Day is a great way for tomorrow’s students to experience what we’re all about, for today’s students to showcase their College, and for our alumni to come reconnect and see how we continue to grow.”
Some of the fun, hands-on activities scheduled 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 NSCC nursing lab. In addition to enjoying the numerous activities, attendees can also apply for an opportunity to win one of two $500 scholarships. Area businesses and advisors from our new Academic Advising Center will be available to discuss career and post-NSCC transfer opportunities. Representatives from financial aid, student services, NSCC student organizations, and other campus departments will be on hand to answer questions and share information.
Discover NSCC Day is a free event, and is open to the public. For more information on the event, visit NorthwestState.edu/discover-nscc or call the NSCC Admissions Office at 419.267.1320
