Open House at Blue Ridge Community College open to the public

Press release from Blue Ridge Community College

Blue Ridge Community College is hosting a free open house on Dec. 7 to give the community a chance to learn more about its programs, ask questions, meet faculty and staff and even take a campus tour.

Now is the perfect time to get started on your career through Blue Ridge, according to Blue Ridge recruiter Cearra Selbrade.

“Countless jobs are hiring right now, and they are looking for well-trained professionals to fill these spots,” Selbrade said. “Our open house gives prospective students a chance to see what we have to offer, like our horticulture, human services, or teacher prep programs.”

The open house takes place in the College’s Sink Building on its Henderson County campus. This event is open to everyone. If you are a high school senior deciding what to do after graduation, or are someone looking to make a career change, see what Blue Ridge programs can do for you.

Current high school students are encouraged to ask questions about Blue Ridge’s Career and College Promise (CCP) program. Through CCP, students can take college courses, and earn tuition-free college credits, all before graduating high school.

The newest addition to open house is the inclusion of campus tours, which will allow visitors a sneak peek of campus.

“People want to see what our campus has to offer, what our classrooms are like, and meet our faculty and staff, so a campus tour is the perfect thing for them,” Selbrade added.

Open house attendees can join a tour group before it leaves from the Sink Building. The tour guides will be taking tours throughout the event.

Whether you’d like to ask questions about FAFSA or courses, find out more about CCP, or figure out your transfer options, Blue Ridge Open House has something for you.
