Prospective students and parents visit and tour campus

Northeastern Junior College (NJC) will host the fall visitation day on Friday, November 11th.  “Discovery Day” on campus provides an opportunity for prospective students and their parents to visit campus, learn about the academic offerings, tour the living quarters and have dialogue with professors, other students, and staff.  Other dates will be in the spring on February 20th and April 14th, 2017.
The college’s admissions and recruitment staff will welcome campus guests on Friday morning with a jam-packed agenda that begins at 8:00 a.m. and runs until early afternoon. Registration and refreshments are offered from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. in the lobby of the Bank of Colorado Event Center.  At 8:45 a.m., prospective college athletes have an opportunity to meet with coaches for all sports to discuss opportunities available.  Students interested in livestock judging or the rodeo team meet with coaches from these areas as well.
At 9:15 a.m. the college’s student Ambassadors provide opening remarks, followed by remarks from the college’s admission and recruitment personnel.
Specialty sessions--one designed for students, and one designed for parents--are held from 10:10 a.m. to 11 a.m.  Starting at 11 a.m. visitors are offered an opportunity to explore the campus through tours led by the Ambassadors. This tour includes meeting with faculty in various areas of study, eating lunch in the cafeteria and a tour of academic and residence hall buildings
Students interested in the transportation and energy program housed on North Campus are provided transportation to go and visit these areas. Students interested in equine management are taken to the Logan County Fairgrounds to observe students in this program actually in class. The instructors in these areas take time to answer questions and provide basic information on their programs.
At the end of the day, visitors make a final stop at the Admissions and Recruitment Office in Hays Student Center where they can get more information and pick up some Northeastern swag for their trip home. 
Discovery Day is open to anyone who has an interest in attending Northeastern. The college does ask that you pre-register prior to the event.  There is a registration form here.
