College-bound students weighing their options can learn more about the "Exciting Changes, Endless Possibilities" Rowan College at Gloucester County has to offer during Open House on Thursday, Oct. 16 beginning at 5:30 p.m.
This informative event introduces prospective students to all things Rowan College. Throughout the evening, visitors meet talented faculty, financial aid representatives and admissions personnel to make preparing for college fun and easy. Students can explore the College's 70 programs of study and transfer partnerships, providing them the opportunity to personalize higher education to their unique goals and aspirations.
Rowan College awards easily-transferable associate degrees as well as career-oriented credentials. Seven academic divisions comprise the College, which include Business Studies; Health, Physical Education and Recreation; Liberal Arts; Law and Justice; Nursing and Allied Health; Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics; and Continuing Education.
New to the College this year are a premier partnership with Rowan University and an array of on-campus bachelor's degree completion programs. Prospective students can discover pathways to a Rowan University degree, from moving seamlessly to the main campus in Glassboro, to finishing their bachelor's with tuition discounts at Rowan College. Wilmington and Fairleigh Dickinson Universities also maintain degree completion programs on the RCGC campus from which ambitious students can choose. Representatives from these institutions will be in attendance to provide more information.
Aside from academics, activities coordinators and athletic coaches share information that proves college is much more than going to class, while campus tours give visitors a glimpse of RCGC's state-of-the-art facilities. The College possesses an array of amenities, ranging from Career and Academic Planning, to Counseling and Wellness Services. Light refreshments and 500 free T-shirts will be given away.
