VC sponsors College Night 2010

Event makes information about higher education accessible to area students

College Night 2010 at Victoria College will be held Tuesday, Nov. 2 from 6 - 8 p.m. in the VC Sports Center gym. VC transfer students and local high school students and their parents are encouraged to attend the event to get information about admissions, financial aid and transfer options offered by 25 different Texas colleges and universities.

College Night at VC gives local high school students easy access to college information. Students will have an opportunity to visit with many representatives from major Texas colleges and universities all in the same evening.

“VC’s College Night is included on the Texas Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers recruiting schedule and consequently has become an incredible recruiting opportunity for several colleges,” said Tisha Sternadel, who has coordinated the event for the past nine years.

“Many of our students intend to transfer and pursue their goal of earning a bachelor’s degree, so College Night is a perfect venue to get the information they need,” said VC President Tom Butler. “Because VC is also a College Night participant, high school students have a great opportunity to learn more about the programs VC offers. As educators, it our job to make sure that all students have access to the information they need to help them achieve their educational goals.”

VC offers more than 40 areas of study and numerous transfer plans leading to a variety of associate degrees and transfer options. VC’s Career & Technical and Allied Health programs allow students to enter the workforce right away.
