Background: For more than 20 years, Genesee Community College has invited the public to its Main Campus in Batavia on Veterans Day for two very important events-welcoming potential new students with an Academic Open House and honoring veterans for their service to our country with a Veterans Day Ceremony. On Monday, November 11, 2019 the tradition continues to host potential students of all ages and their families to Open House from 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. and the entire community to the annual Veterans Day Honor Ceremony at 12:30 p.m.
The Open House event will include:
• 8 a.m. Early bird event registration and campus tour
• 8:30 a.m. General event registration
• 9 a.m. Information sessions with Admissions, Financial Aid, Student Success Center representatives and more
• 10:15 a.m. Academic Fair – meet professors and instructors face to face
• 10:30 a.m. Campus Tours begin – see the new Richard C. Call (athletic) Arena and Student Success Center as well as the new apartments at College Village, the Library, Book Store, Student Union, Genesee Center for the Arts and GCC’s many state-of-the-art classrooms and labs
• 12 p.m. Nursing Program Information Session – for those interested
Online registration for the Open House is the best way to reserve a seat for the opportunity to explore GCC. Whether you are looking to attend college for the first time, return to college to advance your current career, or even launch a brand new venture, GCC’s student success coaches are specifically trained to guide individual pathways to success! Meet your success coach at Open House!
