CHESTER and MIDLOTHIAN, Va. – Want to learn about art, history, math, cyber security, business, childcare, electricity, or personal computing? John Tyler Community College wants to hear from you. On Saturday, February 21, 2015, from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m., the College will hold an open house at the Wakefield Foundation, located at 100 Wilson Avenue in Wakefield. During the event, John Tyler personnel will be on hand to discuss a number of topics, including what college courses and programs would be of interest to the citizens of Sussex and surrounding localities and whether potential students would prefer to take classes online, in-person at the Wakefield Foundation, or in-person at one of JTCC’s campuses. College staff also will be available to answer questions about applying to Tyler and paying for college, as well as to discuss current class offerings and resources available through the College. Open house attendees will be given the opportunity to explore the computer lab, which JTCC helped equip with updated desktop computers. Tyler staff will be in the lab, providing one-on-one assistance to those who want to fill out their online application for admission to JTCC and to help those interested in learning more about what it’s like to take online classes.
Information gathered during the open house will help John Tyler Community College determine how it can better serve the people residing in Sussex and the surrounding counties. For more information about the open house, contact Dr. Julie Ranson at email@example.com, 804-706-5122 or 804-594-1492.
In the event of inclement weather, the open house will be held from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 28, 2015.
