Posted: October 10, 2012
Mt. Hood Community College (MHCC) will host College Night, 6 – 8 p.m., Nov. 14, one of several such events held this time of year throughout the state.
College Night is an annual event to inform high school juniors and seniors (and their parents /guardians) about strategies for accessing, attending and paying for college. The information shared is not specific to MHCC and is open to all high school juniors and seniors, regardless of their desired college destinations.
Educational Credit Management Corporation (ECMC), the event sponsor, will award four $500 scholarships to attend any post-secondary institution in the U.S. that participates in Title IV programs. The drawing will be held close to 8 p.m.
“Whether you’re new to the college-going process or simply seeking answers about admissions, financial aid or how to effectively pursue scholarships, College Night will get you ready,” says Sydney Eustrom, manager of Student Outreach and High School Services.
American Sign Language (ASL) interpreters will be on site.
Presentations will provide information on:
- Why College is Important
- Choosing the Right College for You
- Understanding the Financial Aid Process
- Scholarship Searches and Scams
MHCC is located at 26000 SE Stark St. in Gresham, Ore. Parking is free on all MHCC campuses, all days, all times.
