College Open House Season is right around the corner. We’re hosting our Fall Open House on October 20th at 9 a.m. and you can register on our website.
Open Houses are one of the best opportunities to see if a campus is the right fit for you. Here are our tips to make the most out of every one you attend throughout your college search process.
Ask Lots of Questions
Open Houses are times when the entire college will come out to answer your questions. Want to know how many clinical hours you need to be in for the nursing program? No problem. Want to know what life is like living in the dorms? Take a Res Hall tour. Whatever the question, there will be an answer for how the college can help achieve your goals.
Get as much Free Stuff as Possible
Colleges want you to come to their school, which means they will give you free stuff. You’ll get free stuff just for walking in and have chances to win more free stuff. Make sure to follow the college on their social media accounts to see what competitions and chances to win cool prizes there are.
You can follow us on social media @OnondagaCC and we can definitely say you’ll have some chances to win free stuff 😉
Feel the Spirit of Campus by Taking a Tour
The number one way most students know if a college is right for them is by really feeling the spirit of campus. A campus tour is a great way to see if that campus could be your new home! We know it’s what made most of us decide to go to our colleges of choice.
Campus tours run for most of the day during our Open House programming on October 20th.
Look at their Dorms
You’ll know you can make a campus home if you think you could live there. That’s why taking a tour of the dorms on a college campus is so important.
At OCC, we have 4 residence halls that house around 900 students. While many of our students commute to our campus, living on campus can have a lot of perks. Check out the space when you visit OCC on October 20th!
Have a Free Meal
Colleges will often provide free food during your visits. Take advantage! It’s a great way to get a preview of what the food on-campus will be like.
For our upcoming Open House, we’ll be serving a chicken parm buffet!
We hope this helps you get the most out of Open Houses at the schools you’re going to tour. You can register for OCC Open House on October 20th at 9 a.m. on our Website.
