MAC plans informational open house
Mineral Area College is having a open house at its North College Center on the Park Hills campus, to help students with the application, registration and financial aid process. Career Advisor Beth Mell, Admissions Director Julie Sheets, and Financial Aid Director Denise Sebastian will be on hand to answer any questions and help potential students feel comfortable with the idea of attending MAC. To register, call (573) 518-2193.
Recognizing that the thought of re-entering the classroom can initially be a scary experience for some, Mineral Area College is holding an informational open house and question-and-answer session from 9-11 a.m., Wednesday, Nov. 13, at the North College Center, the building located near the Hwy. O entrance of the Park Hills campus.
Beth Mell, career advisor, is helping to plan the event, and said the open house was prompted after hearing many older students say they wish they'd known how easy it was to enroll at MAC, take classes, and perform beyond their own expectations, grade-wise.
"Every time I hear a student at the beginning of the semester express anxiety, I try to calm them and reassure them they'll be surprised by how used to the campus they'll get," she said. "When I check in with them later, they often say, ‘I’m enjoying the college experience and I’m confident I can do this. I can't believe I was so scared to attend college.'"
The 9-11 a.m. event will offer information on financial aid, application, enrollment, and registering for classes. Tours of the campus will be available, and questions are encouraged. Mell said walk-ins are welcome, and the usual $15 application fee will be waived for those who apply that day.
Anyone interested in attending should call (573) 518-2193 or 518-2133 to RSVP or get more information.
