College Admissions Day & Open House Set for June 30 & July 21
On Wednesday, June 30 and Wednesday, July 21, new prospective students at Robeson Community College will have an opportunity to receive assistance to complete their application to RCC, file their FAFSA, register for classes, take a campus tour, and they can even receive the COVID-19 vaccination, all in one visit during College Admissions Day.
And, to “top it all off,” Top That Dessert Bar will be on campus selling sweet treats for purchase to the campus community.
Students who register during the College Admissions Day & Open House event will receive a coupon to receive a free dessert from Top That Dessert Bar. Coupons must be redeemed the day given.
But that’s not all, two drawings will also be held for those who complete the enrollment process, one for a chance to win 1 of 6 gas gift cards and the other for the Grand Prize, a new laptop, graciously donated by the RCC Foundation.
“We wanted to give our students the opportunity to come to campus and meet face-to-face with advisors,” said Patricia Locklear, director of admissions and enrollment services at RCC. “We also wanted to make it a fun event and we hope that anyone that is interested in taking classes this fall, whether they are a traditional student, a CCP student, or an online student, will come out and see us, register, take a tour, and enjoy the day.”
The event will take place from 8:00 am – 6:00 p.m. on both days in the Student Center located in Building 13.
Campus tours will be given every hour for those who are interested in seeing the campus and various departments.
In addition, UNC Southeastern Hospital will be on campus administering the COVID-19 vaccine, making it convenient for students to get vaccinated on campus, if they so choose. The vaccination clinic is open to the general public and will be held from 8am – 6pm on June 30 and July 21 in Building 13.
“All hands will be on deck,” said Locklear. “We will be here ready to serve our students and our community to meet their needs… to take barriers out of the way to help students return to normalcy for Fall 2021.”
