Register Today – OJC Discovery Day’s Approaching Quickly

 

Otero Junior College will host its Fall Discovery Day on Thursday, Oct. 11 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. beginning in the Humanities Center on the OJC campus. According to Debbie Phillips, OJC’s enrollment management coordinator, OJC Discovery Day is an opportunity for prospective students and their parents to visit the campus and explore the many options available to them at OJC as they prepare to choose a college. There is no charge to attend Discovery Day and families and guests are welcome.

“We have a beautiful campus and exceptional programs of study that we want to make sure anyone who is thinking about enrolling in college has an opportunity to explore,” said Phillips. “Prospective students will have a chance to tour the campus in small groups, led by our Student Ambassadors. These are current students that can not only provide great information about the college, but can also speak about what it is like to be a student at OJC,” she said.

Guests who register for the event will get a free lunch and attend a Campus Fair, where they can meet with instructors, student club representatives, student housing and student support staff. Students that are interested in student housing will also be able to tour the OJC student dormitories. All attendees will also receive a $200 visitation scholarship to be used for future tuition costs at OJC.

Phillips explained that while on the tour, the groups will attend some short informational sessions that will help answer many of their questions. The sessions will include learning more about the programs of study available at OJC, exploring the various options available to students to help pay for college, including scholarships and financial aid, and finding out about what kind of support OJC offers to students to help them be successful in the classroom.
