Ready to take a huge stride at the largest college in Houston? Then plan to attend a Lone Star College (LSC) Open House taking place April 18-22.
“Attending an open house is a wonderful way for students and their families to get a sense of the college experience in a very informal and stress-free way,” said Stephen C. Head, Ph.D., LSC chancellor. “Students often tell stories about feeling nervous the first time they step onto a college campus. Attending an open house can help lessen that anxiety.”
LSC Open House gives future students and their families the chance to meet LSC faculty and staff and learn about the many educational opportunities available at LSC. In addition, visitors will have a chance to win prizes, and free food and giveaways will be offered at all of the events.
“Lone Star College-North Harris has directed my life in a positive way,” said Jessica Tovias, current LSC-North Harris student. “I am more than glad that my first college experience was from attending Lone Star College.”
There are many great reasons for students to start close at LSC. They take advantage of high-quality higher education that is close to home and costs a fraction of four-year universities.
“It’s not just the cost savings,” said Head. “Students who complete their first two years of higher education at a community college like Lone Star College and then transfer to a four-year institution are more likely to graduate with a bachelor’s degree.”
LSC has many academic transfer degrees along with state of the art workforce and career training to help students launch successful careers.
Representatives will be on hand to answer questions about degree options, and financial aid information will also be available to help students learn about options to help pay for college.
The LSC Open House scheduled for Kingwood is Saturday, April 22 from 10 a.m.-1 p.m.
