FCC to Host College Night Oct 1 for Area High School Students


Frederick Community College will host admissions representatives from more than 100 colleges and universities at its annual College Night on Wednesday, October 1, 2014. Area high school students and their parents are invited to attend the event in the Field House from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

“This is a great opportunity to speak with representatives and gather information from a variety of colleges and universities all in one evening,” said Marie Staley, FCC’s assistant director of admissions. “We host this event so students in Frederick County have an opportunity to make a first contact with someone from the college they hope to attend. They can ask questions and get immediate feedback. We welcome students who plan to attend FCC and then transfer to four-year schools, as well as those who plan to leave for college right after high school.”

FCC has provided College Night guides to area high schools to help students prepare for the event. The guide includes a list of the colleges that have been invited and suggests questions and criteria that students should have in hand to ask the college representatives.

Last year’s College Night attendance exceeded 2,000. The FCC Admissions Office expects another large turnout and recommends participants enter FCC’s north entrance (across from Monocacy Middle School) for parking.
