‘Go Ivy Day’ will offer campus tour, opportunities for higher education success
KOKOMO, Ind. — Ivy Tech Community College’s Kokomo Campus will open its doors July 22 to give prospective students and interested area residents a chance to see the many opportunities it offers for personal and career advancement.
The “Go Ivy Day” event is set for 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., Tuesday, July 22, at the main campus at 1815 E. Morgan St. The event will include campus tours with a sneak preview of upcoming renovations. Visitors are invited to relax and enjoy snacks at the Ivy Tech coffee bar and to take advantage of the Ivy Tech giveaways that will be available.
“Faculty members, students and alumni will be on hand to greet visitors and share their Ivy Tech experiences,” said Sarah King, an instructor in Academic Skills Advancement working this year in student recruitment. “Visitors will have the opportunity to learn more about free services geared to support student success as well as transfer options with our four-year partners like Indiana University Kokomo. Indiana Wesleyan University and Trine University.” Advisers also will be on hand to provide assistance for filing for financial aid.
Parents are welcome to attend, King noted, adding that the event will be immediately followed by a new student orientation from 2 to 4 p.m. for anyone who likes what they see. Anyone interested in beginning classes this fall online or at any Ivy Tech location in the region is invited to register for new student orientation, a redesign of Ivy Tech’s Express Enrollment events that help students move quickly through the admission process and on to advising and enrollment. Kokomo Region offers classes in Kokomo, Logansport, Peru, Wabash, Rochester and Tipton.
