PIQUA — Edison State Community College will host Explore Edison for community members, area high school students and their parents, Oct. 15, from 6 to 8 p.m. in the Robinson Theater at the Piqua Campus.

The open house event will showcase more than 30 of the college’s academic programs.

In addition to exploring Edison’s academic programs, attendees will be able to meet professors, tour state-of-the-art facilities, learn more about financial aid and scholarship opportunities available and speak with university partners about transfer opportunities.

“It’s time for students to shop for college and this event enables them to discover all the wonderful opportunities Edison has to offer,” said Enrollment Manager Christina Raterman. “They can talk to Admissions to find out their next steps for enrolling, talk to faculty about programs, and attend breakout sessions covering topics such as College Credit Plus and scholarships. We look forward to connecting with families and getting them the information they want to know.”

A comprehensive list of programs will be highlighted including career programs in business, computer information technology, engineering technology, health science, industrial management and technology, and social and legal services.

Participants can also learn more about Edison’s 2+2 University Transfer Degrees, which allow students to complete the first two years of a bachelor’s degree at Edison before transferring to their university of choice.

Industry leaders will be in attendance to speak with students and parents about the need for skilled workers in the Miami Valley.

Attendees will be able to learn more about College Credit Plus, a state-supported, post–secondary option program, which offers higher learning opportunities to high school students at little or no cost.

The evening includes free pizza and refreshments and attendees will also be entered to win a three-credit-hour tuition waiver or one of two Kindle Fire HD tablets.
