Area high school seniors also invited to Royal Center Public Library event
LOGANSPORT, Ind. — Ivy Tech Community College is sponsoring a “Return 2 Learn” event Wednesday, Nov. 18, at the Royal Center Library in Royal Center. The event is aimed at encouraging area residents to continue their education, no matter where they are in their pursuit, and to offer the information and resources they need to get back on track.
The event is scheduled from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. in the meeting room at the Royal Center Public Library. Area high school seniors and their parents are invited to attend, along with adults who are considering returning to college.
Participating agencies, and their areas of interest, include the following:
Ivy Tech Community College Logansport – certificates, technical certificates and associate degrees
- Trine University – bachelor’s and master’s degrees
- Royal Center Public Library – basic literacy
- Logansport Community School Corporation Adult Learning Center – HSE (high school equivalency/formerly known as GED) and ESL (English as a Second Language)
Information on educational funding opportunities through Work One also will be available.
Ivy Tech and Trine representatives will be focusing on the importance of higher education, with information on various degree programs and the enrollment process as well as options for financing higher education that make going to college more feasible for working adults and parents.
“According to Indiana data, we know there are a lot of working adults – an estimated 737,000 in the state – who started college and never reached their degree. And we know there are a lot of challenges for working adults, especially those with families, to find the time, money and energy to go back to school,” said Suzanne Dillman, associate vice chancellor of Student Affairs for Ivy Tech’s Logansport Campus. “But we also know the impact higher ed credentials can have on job satisfaction and earning power – and Ivy Tech and Trine representatives will be on hand to talk about all the options and student support services that are available.”
