Hundreds Attend Chatt Tech Senior Day
Chattahoochee Technical College welcomed more than 200 area high school seniors at its North Metro campus.
About 250 high school seniors from several area schools attended class at Chattahoochee Technical College in Acworth on Friday.
“You can tell these students all about college as much as you want, but this is really a chance for them to experience it,” CTC recruiter Brookeanna Herring said.
After an early morning information session about everything from financial aid and admission to student activities and athletics, the students picked out programs they were most interested in learning more about.
About 10 programs provided faculty to hold 30-minute mock classes that provided students a chance to ask questions and try their hands at some of the activities and assignments. In addition, seniors could ask questions of current students who were serving as guides during the event.
“Students transplanted flowers, played with color, learned about different styles of law enforcement and discussed the future of electric and hybrid vehicles,” said Herring. “We hope they have a better idea of what these programs are really like and what opportunities are out there for them.”
The students from North Cobb, Cartersville, Etowah, Woodstock, Woodland and Cass high schools also learned more about the transition from high school to college with information sessions that highlighted some of the important factors of the application process.
Chattahoochee Technical College will offer another opportunity for prospective students and families to check out the offerings at the college in April.
On Thursday, April 12 from 5 to 7 p.m., CTC will host Preview Day at the college’s North Metro campus in Acworth. Preview Day is a showcase of all majors offered at the college with faculty members from different programs of study on hand to answer program specific questions. In addition, attendees may speak to admissions and financial aid representatives, as well as to staff from other college departments.
