High school students who are exploring post-secondary options are invited to attend the 2021 Greater Kalamazoo Area College Night Oct. 18 at Kalamazoo Valley Community College’s Texas Township Campus.

“Where else can you access information about so many different colleges and universities under one roof?” Pauken said. “It’s a great way to learn about different higher education opportunities.”

High school students who are exploring post-secondary options are invited to attend the 2021 Greater Kalamazoo Area College Night Oct. 18 at Kalamazoo Valley Community College’s Texas Township Campus.

Representatives from nearly 60 different public and private colleges and universities, including several Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) and Hispanic-Serving Institutions (HSIs) are expected to attend as well as a number of community colleges and other training institutions. Representatives from each institution will be available from 6 - 7:30 p.m. to speak with students and their parents about post-secondary educational opportunities, their programs and campuses.

Additionally, representatives from the U.S. Armed Forces will be on hand to discuss military opportunities and how military service can help pay for a college education.

Director of Enrollment Management Megan Pauken said the event is an excellent opportunity and convenient way for college-bound students and their parents to explore their options.

“Where else can you access information about so many different colleges and universities under one roof?” she said. “It’s a great way to learn about different higher education opportunities. From community colleges and large, four-year universities to small liberal arts colleges, technical schools, go-to-work academies and military service, there’s something for everyone. It’s one-stop shopping.”

Co-sponsored by Kalamazoo Valley and Western Michigan University, the 2021 Greater Kalamazoo College Night is free and open to the public. For more information, call 269.488.4303.
