One hundred fifty high school students from Churchill County High School and Fernley High School will visit Western Nevada Community College in Fallon Friday morning to learn about academic programs, counseling and financial aid and to meet faculty and staff. College Day events are organized by the college's Student Services Division to increase awareness of WNCC.
In addition to tours and a free barbecue, participants will have a chance to meet current students and faculty and learn about WNCC programs, financial aid opportunities, how to enroll in classes and how to plan for college and career success.
"When you bring students onto campus, you increase their comfort level about the college," Outreach Coordinator Sue Richards said.
College Day includes a barbecue at 11 a.m. at the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association rodeo at the Churchill County Fairgrounds.
