Bucks Hosts Two Spring Open House Events for Potential Students
Free events March 27 at Newtown and April 9 at Perkasie feature representatives from academic departments, campus tours, more
Bucks County Community College is hosting an open house for prospective students from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, March 27, in the Linksz Pavilion on the college’s Newtown campus. In addition, the Upper Bucks Campus will host an open house from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 9, in the Student Commons.
Representatives from academic departments will be available for questions and information. Officials from the college’s financial aid and other student-services departments will also be on hand, while campus tours will be conducted by student ambassadors.
Marlene Barlow, Director of Admissions, says the open house is a great opportunity to learn how Bucks can help you reach your educational goals.
“People may be surprised to learn that we’re a competitive choice among college options,” said Barlow. “We continue to strive for improvements both physically and academically, from adding a new science building to introducing new programs to match career opportunities.”
More than 80 majors are offered that lead to either a two-year associate degree or a shorter-term certificate. Courses can be taken at the Newtown Campus, the Upper Bucks Campus in Perkasie, the Epstein Campus at Lower Bucks in Bristol, and online through the college’s award-winning virtual campus.
After attending Bucks, most students transfer to a four-year college or university to complete a bachelor’s degree, while others directly enter the workforce to launch a career.
Bucks County Community College is located at 275 Swamp Rd., Newtown, Pa. The Upper Bucks Campus is located at One Hillendale Rd., Perkasie, Pa. For information or to register, visit www.bucks.edu/admissions/events, call 215-968-8112 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
