The Kaskaskia College Nashville Education Center will be hosting an Open House for all interested students, alumni and the public on Monday, March 3 from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
Representatives of the KC Admissions Office will be available for advising appointments for the upcoming summer and fall semesters. Staff will also be available to help prospective students complete a Kaskaskia College application on-line.
Area residents are encouraged to stop by to see the plans for the new Nashville Education Center that will include classrooms and Nursing and Science laboratories, along with computer class rooms and a Distance Learning classroom. The highlight of the spaces will be a block of four classrooms that can be opened up into one large space that can accommodate seating for 108 at tables or 246 in open seating, which will allow for larger gatherings and seminars. The new building will also have an open computer lab for community as well as student use, and three Business Incubator offices that will house three small business startups, with technology and administrative help for prospective entrepreneurs.
Other highlights will be KC Financial Aid personnel available to assist students and parents with filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and to assist area veterans with any educational concerns they may have.
