Special Events on Campus Help Students Succeed

Oct. 4, 2012
Special to the Campus Current
 

Anne Arundel Community College is sponsoring several events in October aimed at helping students successfully meet their educational goals.

Find out if you have life experience or prior knowledge that could earn you college credit. Attend one of two free information sessions on AACC’s Prior Learning Assessment program. The sessions meet Saturdays, Oct. 13 and Nov. 10, at 10 a.m. in the Center for Applied Learning and Technology on AACC’s Arnold campus. College staff will review eligibility requirements and explain the steps involved. For information, call 410-777-2340, email fmturcott@aacc.edu or visit the website, www.aacc.edu/priorlearning. 

If you have not declared a major – or are considering switching majors – come to Major Mania, Thursday, Oct. 18, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Student Union dining hall. Talk to faculty from more than 15 academic departments about programs of study and related careers. Figuring out a major that meets your educational and career goals gives you a clear path of courses to take and helps you gauge the steps you need to take to earn a degree or certificate. For information, contact Joan Sturtevant at 410-777-2284 or jbsturtevant@aacc.edu.

Even if you have just begun at AACC, it is never too early to think about where you should continue your education. Attend Transfer Advising Day Wednesday, Oct. 24 at either 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. or at 5 to 7 p.m. in the Student Union dining hall. Representatives from close to 40 four-year colleges and universities will attend the daytime session, with 11 of them available for the evening session. Talk to these representatives and see where your goals fit best. Another advantage to deciding on a transfer school is that many transfer schools prefer students take specific courses. Knowing that information helps you choose the right courses at AACC. For information, call 410-777-2307, email advising@aacc.edu or visit the website, www.aacc.edu/transfer.
