SSC Fall Open House a Success

SOUTH HOLLAND, IL – South Suburban College hosted its 3rd Annual Open House on
Thursday, August 4th from 4:30-7:00 p.m. with something for everyone. There was fun, excitement and a large dose of enthusiasm provided by college staff. The Open House, geared toward providing College information and pathways to successful careers, saw nearly 300 persons come through its doors seeking just that. Many participated in College tours and raffles for an IPad Air, Visa Gift Cards, and other giveaways. WGCI and Tone Kapone were also on campus and rounded out the fun.

Program representatives from STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math), Manufacturing, Building and Construction, Paralegal Studies, Court Reporting, Allied Health, SSC Maker Lab, Graphic Arts, Nursing, Applied Engineering, Electronics Engineering, Computer Aided Design (CAD), Job Training and many more were on hand to answer questions and guide potential students with program facts and requirements. Others provided hands-on experience and technology displays that were fun as well as interesting such as a nail drive contest featured by Building and Construction and a programmable game board featured by Applied Engineering Technology.

Representation from Admissions, Registration, Counseling, Academic Assistance Center and other supportive services assisted our students in navigating their college and career choices. Students received valuable information on the registration process, course selection options, Financial Aid, as well as Student Life. Despite the lingering budget crisis with the State of Illinois, our doors are open and we remain committed to the mission of South Suburban College by “Serving our Students and the Community through lifelong learning.”
