Occupational open house set at Bay College campus
ESCANABA – Bay College will host the 26th annual Occupational Open House on Oct. 31 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. High school juniors and seniors may visit the campus to explore the career and technical programs offered at Bay College.
According to Mark Kinney, dean of Business, Technology, and Workforce Development, students should find the event to be informative and worth the time.
“Many students are undecided about what kind of career paths they will pursue and the Open House gives them exposure to several possibilities,” Kinney said.
“Those students wishing to continue education beyond an associate’s degree will also discover that many of our occupational programs will transfer to Lake Superior State University, Ferris State University, and other 4-year institutions.”
Area high school juniors and seniors will be able to attend three presentations from the following program areas: accounting/computer specialist, automotive technology, business administration/ marketing/small business, computer information systems, computer network systems and security, criminal justice, early childhood development, geographical information systems, hospitality management, human services, nursing (LPN/ RN), office information systems, water resource management, environmental management, and welding technology.
Last year, over 350 students from 16 area high schools participated in this event. High school juniors and seniors can register for the Bay College Occupational Open House in Escanaba by contacting their high school counselor. Lunch will be provided.
