Jackson State Community College will host an open house event Saturday, January 10 on the main campus at 2046 North Parkway. The campus will be open from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. that day.
This is an opportunity for new and returning students to finalize details before the beginning of the term. Countance Anderson, director of registration and orientation, says, It is also an opportunity for anyone interested in finding out more about Jackson State, take a tour of the campus and meet with faculty and staff.
There are a number of things planned that will allow everyone to mingle and see what the school has to offer. Free snacks are being offered and drawings for door prizes. Many of the activities will be geared toward new and returning students. According to Anderson, This is an opportunity for students to get their IDs, parking permits, buy books, and finalize financial aid.
An open house event was held in August at the before the beginning of the fall semester. We were pleasantly surprised by the turnout, Anderson said. The response was so positive that we feel it is an event that should be done on a regular basis.
Prospective students will also be able to visit most all areas of campus and get a feel for the campus and what Jackson State has to offer. A number of faculty members will be on hand to talk to students and discuss classes. Students and staff will give guided tours and answer questions about campus life. The library will also be open along with the writing center and academic assistance center. Everyone is also encouraged to come by and visit the new fitness center located in the gym.
This is a wonderful opportunity for the folks at Jackson State to showcase what we have to offer our students, Anderson claims. Anyone attending this event should follow the signs on campus to the Student Union Building. Information about the campus along with guided tours will be located there.
