WEST WINDSOR, N.J. -- High school students of all ages and parents of high school students are invited to Explore Mercer, an Open House on Wednesday, April 11 at Mercer County Community College. The event takes place at 6 p.m. in the Student Center.

College administrators and career counselors will present an abundance of information about Mercer's programs, the ease of transferring Mercer credits to four-year colleges, and ways to save thousands on the cost of a bachelor's degree. Participants will be able to explore Mercer's many associate degree and certificate programs, and find out how they can finance their education through financial aid programs. Families will learn the qualifications for NJSTARS, a state program that provides free tuition for New Jersey high schoolers who graduate in the top 20% of their class.

Career counselors will present information about the current job market and the needs of employers. Faculty, staff members and current students will answer questions about the college's programs -- from computer networking to horticulture, from graphic design to aviation, from music to funeral service. Interactive, hands-on exhibits will include computer software demonstrations, massages by physical therapist assistant students, and treats prepared by culinary students. English as a Second Language and Special Services representatives will explain the ways they can help. Refreshments will be served and prizes will be given away.

MCCC's West Windsor campus is located at 1200 Old Trenton Road. Directions are available here. Reservations for the open house are preferred but not required. For further information or to RSVP call the Admissions Office at 609-586-0505 or email admiss@mccc.edu.
