Students young and old offered a look at MCC

CRYSTAL LAKE – McHenry County College invites prospective adult students, as well as high school juniors, seniors and their parents, to attend the college’s annual open house, called MCC Night.

It will be from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday in the gym/multipurpose room in Building B of the campus at 8900 Route 14.

MCC Night 2012 is the community’s opportunity to learn about what McHenry County College has to offer in financial aid support, student life and athletics, and career counseling. Those who attend also can meet instructors and collect information about more than 40 college programs and degree opportunities.

Featured programs include culinary management, nursing, graphic arts, robotics and a variety of transfer degree programs, along with cooking, automotive,
art and science demonstrations.

In addition, current high school students can hear about MCC’s High School Plus program for earning college credit while still in high school.

Adults interested in returning to college to earn a new degree or enhance their skills, and those who wish to take personal enrichment and community education classes, are also encouraged to attend MCC
Night.

It is free and open to the public. No registration is required.

The application fee will be waived for all high school seniors and prospective adult students who apply to MCC for the fall 2013 semester during the open house.

Refreshments and entertainment also will be provided.
