High school seniors owe it to themselves to sign up for the annual Barton Community College Senior Day on Feb. 8 – even if they already have plans to attend another college – or no college – after graduation.
This is a chance to tour the campus and meet new people. While many Barton County residents are familiar with the campus on the hill, some people have never set foot on campus or seen all of the facilities. Advisors can help any student look at his or her plans for the future and offer advice on courses to take or career paths that a particular student may want to explore.
Students who plan to get a bachelor’s degree may be surprised at how much money can be saved by taking the first two years at Barton. Students who want to pursue a career now may be surprised at the variety of workforce training programs available and the difference they can make in future earnings and employability.
To sweeten the deal, they will have a drawing for two $500 BCC scholarships from the Barton Foundation, and will welcome the students to the BCC women’s basketball game that evening.
Students wishing to attend need to sign up by Feb. 1, and they can sign up online at http://seniorday.bartonccc.edu.
It’s good to have choices, and to know the options. This is an excellent opportunity to get “educated.”
