SMC offering two ‘Roadrunner Days’ during November

10/29/2018 - 3pm
Roadrunner Days scheduled Nov. 2, 19

“Roadrunner Days” Friday, Nov. 2, and Monday, Nov. 19, offer opportunities for a more personal introduction to Southwestern Michigan College.

Each event begins at 10 a.m. from the Student Activity Center off Dailey Road on the Dowagiac campus and includes a housing overview, campus tour, lunch with the Student Life team and an academic information session with deans of the three schools. RSVP by calling (269) 782-1499. Additional Roadrunner Days are scheduled Jan. 21 and March 1.

“Parents and students have told us they want a more in-depth experience than a simple open house,” Vice President of Marketing and Enrollment Mike O’Brien said. “We host a variety of students and their families as they plan their future — juniors might make a first visit while evaluating schools or seniors absolutely sure they want to come here who want to see particular academic facilities or to ask specific questions. These are designed primarily for traditional-age students, but transfer, part-time or adult students will find these valuable and are certainly welcome.”

Once registration opens next spring for Fall Semester 2019, “We’ll have a series of orientation options to help students enroll and take care of everything,” O’Brien said.
