Open to all high school seniors in Alachua County, Senior Night will be held from 6-8 p.m. April 2 in the Fine Arts Hall at the SF College northwest campus at 3000 NW 83rd St.
"This is a special night for seniors," said coordinator Stacey Ledvina, adding that the event will provide an opportunity for high school seniors and their parents to see what SF College has to offer, meet key administrators and receive a wealth of information, including how to apply for admission, classes offered, and how to access the many resources available to help students stay in college and succeed.
In conjunction with Senior Night, there will be a tour of the campus led by SF College student ambassadors.
"It's a face-to-face opportunity to ask questions and learn about the college as a whole, not just instructional programs," said Ledvina, adding that those who can't make it to Senior Night can get information by scheduling a tour of the college.
Below is a schedule of activities:
— 6 p.m.: Check-in, refreshments and information tables.
— 6:30-7 p.m.: Introduction to bachelor's programs, the admission process, and an opportunity to meet with department representatives.
— 7-8 p.m.: Tour of the campus and presentations from representatives of the various departments, including the bachelor's degree programs, health sciences, construction and technical programs, fine arts, information tech, student life, the Institute for Public Service, and other programs.
In addition, Ledvina said representatives from various areas will be available to answer questions on various topics, including early childhood development, Career Resource Center, Counseling Center, academic advisement, student life, athletics, honors program, study abroad, My Brother's Keeper, financial aid, Tech Prep, police academy and (math, reading and writing) prep advisement.
When asked what she hopes the students will get from Senior Night, Ledvina said, "Excitement about starting their academic career at SFC."
