NYLON – Genesee Community College will offer two open house events this fall at the Main Campus in Batavia, allowing prospective students and their families to explore the many opportunities the College has to offer.
According to a press release from GCC, the first event is scheduled on Saturday, Oct. 24, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. The admissions, financial aid and advisement staff will be available to answer questions, and enjoy complete tours of the Batavia campus, College Village and the College’s Nursing labs and classrooms located across the street in the Med Tech Building.
“I have been at GCC for nearly 20 years and I continue to be impressed by the diversity of our student body,” said Tanya Lane-Martin, Assistant Dean for Enrollment Services and Director of Admissions. “While we enjoy our traditional-aged students who come from high school, I’m also delighted by our growing number of international students, parents and some grandparents who are attending classes with their children, students from downstate who love our rural community, and the displaced workers who want to retrain and get back into the workforce ASAP. Serving the needs of all these students and helping them achieve their success is what makes GCC such a special place.”
The College will also hold its annual Veterans Day Academic Open House on Wednesday, Nov. 11 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. As the biggest recruitment event of the year, visitors have the opportunity to talk one-on-one with professors and instructors at the Academic Fair which runs from 9 a.m.to 9:45 a.m., gaining inside knowledge about GCC’s many majors and some long-term career projections. In addition, representatives from several four-year colleges will be on hand to talk about transfer options from GCC.
Genesee Community College provides a variety of convenient learning options for students of all ages. Students can take classes at the main campus in Batavia or at one of six campus centers in GCC’s four-county service area, including Lima and Dansville in Livingston County, Albion and Medina in Orleans County, and Arcade and Warsaw in Wyoming County. GCC also has a robust online learning program with more than 100 online courses offered each semester and 15 degrees can be earned fully online.
Establishing new degrees, certificates and concentrations that are focused on careers and jobs of the future has always been a priority for GCC. Among the newest programs are Food Processing Technology AAS, Polysomnographic Technology, AAS, (the study of sleep disorders), Supply Chain Management Concentration and Economic Crime Investigation as two concentrations within the Business Administration program, and GCC recently realigned the science programs into four Natural Science concentrations, specifically Physics, Environmental Biology, Biology and Chemistry.
