‘Bay is the Way’ Day planned Nov. 10

ESCANABA — Bay College and the Delta County College Access Network are collaborating to offer area seniors the opportunity to visit Bay College campus on Friday, Nov. 10, from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. With around 50 percent of area college-bound seniors choosing community college, specifically Bay, this is a positive way to prepare students for what to expect on their educational journey.

Attendees will hear from current and former Bay College students, admissions, financial aid, athletics, and transfer departments, tour the college, and meet with faculty from each student’s individual area of career interest.

Current Bay College student, Caroline Carpiaux, reflected on her experience. “The personal connections I made that day with the staff is the reason I choose Bay. Everyone cares about your success here and will go above and beyond to help; all you have to do is ask. For me, I made the best decision and it all started at Bay is the Way Day,” she said.

“Getting these students on campus, familiarizing them with the college atmosphere, and assisting them in financial aspects of college should help to eliminate some stress associated with navigating college life,” said Kathy Becker, Delta County College Access Network director.

“We are thrilled to have our incoming high school seniors on campus to start those meaningful conversations about their future at the college level,” said Jessica LaMarch, director of admissions at Bay College. “This is a chance for students to start engaging with Bay College faculty and understanding the pathway to their career choice.”

Students who have not yet registered to attend this event are welcome to contact Jessica LaMarch to reserve a spot at Jessica.LaMarch@baycollege.edu or call 906-217-4086.
