College Night set at Bay College
ESCANABA — Bay College’s annual College Night programs have been set. The first is Sunday, Sept. 15, on the Escanaba Bay College Campus in the Besse Center from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Eastern. The second is Monday, Sept. 16, on the Iron Mountain Bay College West Campus from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Central.
College Night provides high school juniors, seniors, parents, college students, and interested community members an opportunity to meet and speak with college representatives. Educational opportunities available in the armed services will also be presented.
Jessica LaMarch, director of admissions at Bay College, is excited about the events. “We’re hoping our community takes advantage of this opportunity to gather information about college options,” said LaMarch. “It’s important to find the right fit for your educational experience, including aspects such as financial obligation, academic requirements, program availability, and institutional personality.”
Between 40 and 50 different institutions of higher education and military representatives from Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota will be present for the event. The list includes large and small public colleges and universities, private colleges, and armed services opportunities.
