Annual “College Day” Features Information on Wide Variety of State and Regional Higher Education Institutions Available on OSU Institute of Technology Campus
This Wednesday, November 10 from 12:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m., more than 200 high school juniors and seniors from Okmulgee County high schools will have the opportunity to visit with representatives from 45 state and regional colleges and universities during “College Day.” The event, held in Covelle Hall on the OSU Institute of Technology campus, is sponsored by the Oklahoma College Day/Night Coordination Committee under the direction of the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education. It is open to all high school juniors, seniors and counselors.
Each year around fifty high schools and colleges across the state host college day/night programs to provide students with information needed to make a college decision. Representatives from two- and four-year colleges and universities are in attendance to visit with prospective students about admissions, scholarships, financial aid, housing and areas of academic interest. College day/night programs are either in a browsing or presentation format. The event on the OSU Institute of Technology campus will be in a browsing format, which allows students to visit with as many representatives as they wish during the program.
The Prospective Student Services Department will be representing OSU Institute of Technology at the College Fair. Recruiters Ashley Duckworth and Misty Rogers will be joined by Heather Hancock, Denise Funk and Mary Graves at the information table. Hancock, Dean of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management, says the Oklahoma Student Loan Association will also be at the event to provide financial information, “College Days such as this allow high school seniors and juniors to see what higher education opportunities are available in the state and the region. They will have a wide array of information available - all in one location.”
