Virginia College will host “Go For The Gold,” an enrollment event for prospective students and their families on Saturday, Sept. 24 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the campus located at Pierre Bossier Mall.
While learning about the educational opportunities available to Shreveport-area students at Virginia College, attendees are also invited to enjoy activities for all ages. The event is part of Virginia College parent company Education Corporation of America’s National Enrollment Event being held simultaneously at 64 other Virginia College, Brightwood College, Brightwood Career Institute and Ecotech Institute locations throughout 16 states.
“In the spirit of the recent Rio Olympics, we are excited to host our own ‘Go For The Gold’ event here at Virginia College in Shreveport,” says Campus President Melody Rider. “It is never too late to pursue a degree in the field you’ve always dreamed of – whether seeking another degree in your field or starting a completely new degree, Virginia College is a great place to make that happen and change your life.”
Throughout the event, admission counselors will be on hand to discuss careers that best suit prospective students’ individual skills and interests. Additionally, attendees can tour the campus, hear about the hands-on training approach characteristic of Virginia College programs, meet faculty, students and staff including the Financial Aid office, learn about the application and enrollment process and experience the variety of programs through live demonstrations led by current students. Additional activities include Office Olympics where staff and students will compete against each other.
