ARCHBOLD, OHIO – More than 40 years ago, Northwest State Community College began with a graduating class of sixty-six. Since then, the College has grown to offer over 70 degree and certificate programs to a campus of more than 4,000 students. Companies throughout the region are looking for an educated and trained workforce. Discover NSCC Day on Saturday, November 5 from 10 a.m.-12 p.m. will allow area residents to explore the available career training and educational options available at Northwest State.
“Although many people have heard of Northwest State, they may not realize the wide range of learning opportunities available,” said Amanda Potts, director of admissions. “At Discover NSCC Day, all of our academic divisions will be up and running with interactive activities and demonstrations during this event. Discover NSCC Day is a great way to experience the opportunities that NSCC has to offer. The event will have something for everyone, including families and undecided students who are exploring majors.”
Some of the fun, hands-on activities scheduled include testing specimens in the medical assisting lab, investigating a mock crime scene, a children’s reading corner (led by NSCC education students), 3-D printing and chemistry exploration, and observing simulations in the state-of-the-art NSCC nursing lab. In addition to the activities and demonstrations, attendees can also apply for an opportunity to win one of two $500 scholarships. Representatives from financial aid, student services, transfer services and other campus departments will be on-hand to answer questions and share information.
Discover NSCC Day is free and open to the public. For more information on the event, visit NorthwestState.edu or call the NSCC Admissions Office at 419.267.1320.
