Lincoln Land Community College invites high school students and their parents, along with others interested in returning to school, to Campus Visit Day on Presidents Day, Monday, Feb. 19. The free event is being held at the LLCC Springfield campus, 5250 Shepherd Road, with two sessions scheduled, 10 a.m.-noon and 5-7 p.m.
"Campus Visit Day is a special event designed for individuals interested in starting or finishing a college degree or certificate, and families are welcome to attend," explains LLCC President Dr. Charlotte Warren. "It is a great way to explore the academic and career programs that we offer, become more familiar with the campus and get important information on becoming a successful college student."
Both morning and evening sessions feature presentations that include comments from current students and information on how to get started with the enrollment process and pay for college. In addition, tours are offered of Menard and Sangamon halls as well as the Workforce Careers Center.
Visitors can view exhibits and speak with LLCC representatives of academic programs and student services. Those unsure of which program area to study are invited to take a short career assessment. Prospective students can apply for admission and get FAFSA assistance during the event.
Refreshments are provided and feature baked goods from LLCC Culinary Arts.
Registration for Campus Visit Day is available at www.llcc.edu/campus-visit-day or by calling 217-786-2577.
