COC & Hart District Host SCV College Day

More than thirty colleges and universities will descend on
College of the Canyons on Saturday, September 30, for Santa Clarita Valley
College Day 2006.  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.

Sponsored by College of the Canyons and the Wm. 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 and CSU systems,
and much more.

"We are thrilled to host the 2006 College Day at College of the Canyons,"
said Debbie Rio, Director, Admissions, Records & Online Services for the
College.  "This is the third year that College Day has been held on the COC
campus," said Rio, "and attendance has grown dramatically.  Parents and
students," stressed Rio, "are finding that the information and insights
about the admissions processes of various colleges and universities are
invaluable during the application process."

College Day is also an opportunity for parents and students to get
acquainted with the COC campus since recent studies show that 60 percent or
more of William S. Hart Unified School District graduates go on to attend
College of the Canyons. 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 answer questions and several buildings
on campus will be open for visitation, such as the biology and biotechnology
labs, the transfer center and career services.

Admission to the event is free as is parking in the COC lots.
