With campuses shuttered and stay-at-home orders in place, it’s not an easy time to plan ahead for college. That’s why Minnesota State College Southeast is hosting virtual open houses on April 28, 29 and 30.
The virtual open houses are designed for students who are planning to enroll in college this fall or get started on college courses this summer. For more information and to register, go to southeastmn.edu.
• Business and management virtual open house, Wednesday, April 29, 2020, 4-5:30 p.m.
• Criminal justice/sociology virtual open house, Thursday, April 30, 2020, 4-5:30 p.m.
Advanced registration is required to participate in the virtual open houses. Details on how to log in will be provided upon registration.
“This is a great opportunity to learn about financial aid, scholarships, program options and course registration,” said Tammy Vondrasek, director of admissions and enrollment. “We’re excited that quite a few faculty members will be on hand to introduce their programs and answer students’ questions directly.”
The health care virtual open house on April 28 featured faculty presentations from several programs, including medical support careers, nursing, radiography, medical laboratory technician, and phlebotomy.
The business and management open house on April 29 will include faculty from sustainable food and farming, accounting, administrative support careers, retail and sales management, and business management.
Instructor Greg Cady will represent criminal justice and sociology at the April 30 virtual open house.
Just like a typical on-campus open house, the college will waive the $20 application fee for those who apply for admission.
“We’re planning to draw for door prizes too!” Tammy Vondrasek said. “Even though we can’t meet face to face right now, we’re looking forward to meeting with students online and we hope to see them on campus in the future.”
