ZANESVILLE, Ohio- For the younger crowd starting to think about life after high school there is an event for you.
The Campus Center will be hosting ‘College Night 2017’ at Zane State College/Ohio University-Zanesville on Thursday, March 9th. The event will take place from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. and is open to grades 7-12 and their family members.
The event will provide information to prepare students and their parents with the tools necessary to help chose higher education.
Katie McCarty, Educational Assistant at Muskingum County Community Foundation, helped organize the event and said it is a great opportunity for students who still have questions about post-secondary education.
“We really want to get as much information to the students and parents as possible.
It’s a great chance for the parents to come in and kind of get an idea of whats ahead for them as well as for the students,” said McCarty.
There is also an added incentive for students to attend.
“We actually have 31 scholarships to give out this year from lots of different organizations and businesses throughout the community. They’ve donated to help students attend college as well so that’s another great opportunity,” said McCarty.
The scholarships are valued at $250 and they will be given away in a raffle style. The students must be present to win.
There will be 19 different sessions, each hosted by area experts.
