More than 100 public and private colleges and universities from Ohio and the multi-state area will visit the Toledo area as Owens Community College serves as host to Northwest Ohio's largest College Preview Night on Wednesday.
The event will occur from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. and is sponsored by the counseling staffs of 20 local high schools and Owens. College tables will be set up in Owens' Student Health and Activities Center and presentations will be held in the Center for Fine and Performing Arts.
Admission to College Preview Night is free and the public is encouraged to attend.
"College Preview Night is a great chance for high school students and their parents, as well as adult students, to visit with admissions representatives and learn about the various educational opportunities available at colleges and universities throughout the surrounding region," said Kari Morgan, Owens admissions representative.
The event will provide prospective students the opportunity to visit with various college and university representatives and pick up important information about admission requirements. Individuals will also learn about financial aid, student activities, academic program offerings, athletic eligibility and accommodations for students with special needs.
Informational sessions will also occur throughout the evening. Attendees can hear presentations on financial aid, online financial aid resources, preparing for the ACT test, preparing to transfer from one academic institution to another, college athletics and admission to military academies and the ROTC.
In addition, representatives from local financial institutions will be present to provide information on student loans and high school counselors will be available during the event to answer general college questions. Representatives of the various military branches will also be on hand to discuss admission to military academies, the ROTC and other scholarship-related programs.
