Richland Community College will be featuring several student and faculty based tours for their spring semester.
The College is looking to showcase the various programs offered through interactive tours and presentations. Janean Garrett, Admissions Specialist with Richland, explains the tours will begin this week with the history department illustrating the various career goals that can be achieved in this field of study.
Richland usually holds several open houses throughout the year, yet Garrett stresses the showcase tours have a different tone. Faculty will usually run mock classrooms in order to give potential students the full experience. Garrett also notes the low student/faculty ratio that gives Richland a more personal feel.
Many community colleges feature transfer programs that continue on to larger universities. Garrett says the tours will have discussions of the many majors that are transferable. She notes there are also some career-based programs that don't transfer as well.
One popular program that will also feature its own tour in Richland's Culinary school with a hands-on showcase on February 25th.
