KOKOMO, Ind. — Ivy Tech Community College’s Kokomo and Logansport campuses will open their doors this month to give prospective students and interested area residents a chance to see the many opportunities they offer for personal and career advancement.

“The ‘Explore Ivy’ campus visit days can be your first step in making the transition to college,” said Marcia Worland, executive director of Marketing & Admissions for Ivy Tech’s Kokomo Region. “Prospective students – whether you’re interested in starting in January or are exploring your options for after high school graduation next spring – will be able to explore our facilities and programs during an interactive, on-campus experience.”
