MECC Career & Transfer Services to hold Two Informational Fairs

MECC Career & Transfer Services will host two Informational Fairs next week. The Annual Fall Transfer Fair will be on Tuesday, October 22 and the Inaugural Program Fair will be on Wednesday, October 23.

The purpose of the Transfer Fair is to allow students and graduates the opportunity to meet with representatives from various institutions all in one afternoon. Participants can gain important information that will help aid them in making an informed transfer decision. Representatives will discuss things like program options, scholarship opportunities and requirements for transferring. Many representatives have new and exciting information about their institution to share with participants. Students are encouraged to meet with several institutions to ensure they make the best decision when it comes to their transfer education. Participants of the Transfer Fair can also enter to win door prizes.  

The Program Fair will highlight some of the programs offered at Mountain Empire Community College. Faculty members will be available to speak with individuals about the course requirements of the program, job prospects, salary ranges, and course offerings. Students can benefit from seeing the variety of programs offered here and speaking with faculty members they may not have met before to hear about options available to them. The Program Fair is timely, as it takes place two days before early enrollment for Spring 2020, so students can take the information they gain from the Program Fair and use it to help build their schedules for the Spring semester.
