Mid-Plains Community College is giving prospective students and their families another opportunity to experience its programs first-hand. 

The college is offering a Visit Day on Jan. 22 to showcase its campuses, offerings and services. Among other things, participants will be able to tour their programs of interest, sit in on a class, meet instructors, join in hands-on projects, learn about the various services MPCC offers and meet new friends through fun activities led by current Mid-Plains students. 

Specialists from a variety of departments will be available to answer questions and provide information about financial aid, housing and credit transfer among many other topics. 

"Visit days are a great opportunity as they offer a different take on the typical campus visit and include several activities students might otherwise have to plan individually," said Mindy Hope, area director of recruiting and admissions. "They provide a more complete perspective on what it's like to be a college student. Visit Days let prospective students experience a lot of what the college has to offer, from academic programs, instructors and potential classmates to student organizations, residence halls and life outside of the classroom. Visitors get a complete view of the college's resources in a single day." 

Anyone thinking about taking college classes is encouraged to attend. Lunch will be provided, and all prospective students will receive a free hoodie. 

Visit Day will be from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. in North Platte and McCook. Check in will begin at 9 a.m. 

Another Visit Day is scheduled for Feb. 26. RSVPs for both events are required at https://campus.mpcc.edu/ICS/RSVP/.
