Bay College will host the 28th Annual Occupational Open House on Thursday, October 29, 2015, from 9:45 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Escanaba Campus. The purpose of this Open House is to provide an opportunity for high school juniors and seniors to visit the campus and explore the career and technical programs offered at Bay College. According to Mark Kinney, Executive Dean of Business, Technology and, Workforce Development students should find the Open House to be extremely informative and well worth the time. “Many students are undecided about what kind of career paths they will pursue and the Open House gives them exposure to several possibilities,” states Kinney. “Those students wishing to continue education beyond an associate’s degree will also discover that many of our occupational programs will transfer to Lake Superior State University, Ferris State University, and other 4-year institutions.”
Area high school juniors and seniors will be able to attend three presentations from the following program areas: Accounting/Computer Specialist, Automotive Technology, Business Administration/Marketing, Computer Information Systems, Computer Network Systems and Security, Criminal Justice, Early Childhood Development, EMT/Paramedic, Geographic Information Systems, Human Services, Mechatronics, Nursing (LPN/RN), Office Information Systems, Water Resource Management, Environmental Management, and Welding Technology. Last year, approximately 500 students from 18 area high schools participated in this event.
High school juniors and seniors can register for the Bay College Occupational Open House by contacting their high school counselor. Lunch will be provided.
