COC Sponsors College Fair

High school students and their parents can meet college recruiters, get questions answered.

More than 60 colleges and universities will be in attendance
at College of the Canyons on Saturday, October 11, for Santa Clarita Valley College
Day 2008. Representatives will be on hand to provide information about their
schools and programs to college-bound high school students and their parents.
The event will take place from 9 a.m.
to 1 p.m. at COC’s Valencia
campus.

 

Sponsored by COC and the William
S. Hart Union
School District, the day will
feature a mall-like area where students can stop and speak with representatives
of the schools. Workshops and presentations are also scheduled that will
provide in-depth discussions of admissions procedures, financial aid processes,
insights into the UC, CSU, and community college systems and much more.

 

“This is a one-of-a-kind, local opportunity for students and
their families to talk with representatives of colleges and universities across
the nation in a one-stop-shopping environment,” said Jasmine Ruys, director of admissions
at COC. “It also provides very specific information about the UC and CSU
admissions process from people who are directly involved in those offices that
will answer many questions that students and their parents may have,” stressed
Ruys.

 

This is the fifth year that College Day has been held on the
COC campus and event attendance has continued to grow.

 

³We are very pleased to partner with the Hart District on
this event,² said Sue Bozman, Vice President of Communications, Marketing and
External Relations for the college district, ³because it gives community
members an unprecedented opportunity to talk to college representatives and to
shop and compare a wide variety of universities and their programs.  We also know that, historically, nearly 60
percent of Hart District students will choose College of the Canyons to begin
their higher education journey,² stressed Bozman, ³and this event also gives
parents and students a chance to explore our Valencia
campus and talk with instructors and counselors.²

 

Participation in workshops and interaction with college and
university representatives will help students be prepared when applying to the four-year
institutions. College Day is also an opportunity for parents and students to
get acquainted with the COC campus.  For
parents and students interested in finding out more about what College of the
Canyons has to offer, several departments will have representatives on hand to
share information about their various majors.

 

Admission to the event is free, as is parking in designated COC
student lots. Additional information is available online at www.canyons.edu/collegeday or by
