AUBURN, WA — Green River Community College will host an open house and resource fair May 4 with the goal of reaching out to prospective students interested in enrolling at the college. New students who complete the Green River Foundation Scholarship application by April 30 and attend the event will be entered to win a $2,500 Green River scholarship. New students who attend will also be entered to win one of two Nexus 7 tablets or one of four gift certificates to the college’s bookstore.
“This open house will highlight Green River’s many programs and services,” said Green River president Dr. Eileen Ely. “It will be an excellent way for people considering attending college to meet faculty, learn about programs and get help with the financial aid process.”
The open house is designed for people who have never attended college or for students returning to college. Green River outreach staff will help prospective students through the admissions process, while faculty will be on hand to explain classes and programs. Staff from campus departments can give insight into the student services and campus life offered at Green River. Community-based organizations will also be present at the resource fair.
The Green River Open House and Resource Fair runs from 1 to 4 p.m. on May 4 at Green River’s Auburn campus. Registration is free. For more information or to register, visit greenriver.edu/openhouse.
