Forsyth Tech will hold an open house on Saturday, April 26 from 9 am – 1 pm on its Main Campus, 2100 Silas Creek Parkway, Winston-Salem. This event offers the community the opportunity to learn about the variety of career and college transfer programs available at the college. The open house is free and open to the public.
An opening session will be held at 9:30 am in the Oak Grove Center Auditorium to orient visitors to the day’s events.
“Our goal for the open house is to introduce prospective students, parents and all adult learners in our community to the many educational and career pathways Forsyth Tech offers,” says Eddie Waddell, Director of Recruiting and Student Support Services. “This is a wonderful opportunity for anyone who wants to know more about Forsyth Tech to speak directly with our faculty and staff and have their questions answered. Prospective students will also be able to complete their application to the college during the open house if they bring their Social Security number.”
During the open house, visitors will have an opportunity to meet with representatives from academic programs, admissions, financial aid and student support services.
The event will feature a variety of demonstrations from different programs that will allow visitors to explore career options in such areas as transportation technology, cyber crime technology, biotech, nanotech, health technologies, plumbing, HVAC, carpentry, electrical, horticulture, broadcasting, digital effects & animation, architecture and interior design.
Workshop sessions will be offered to help attendees learn more about financial aid, college transfer and career options.
In addition, the open house will include a panel discussion about manufacturing, a student-led panel discussion about the college’s paralegal program and a fine arts showcase that highlights student performances and artwork.
A resource fair will also be available and will include representatives from off-campus centers, the Minority Male Mentoring Program, the Shugart Women’s Center, Economic & Workforce Development, VetCenter, Alumni Association and much more. Free refreshments will be available, and a local jazz band will perform at the Alumni Oval throughout the open house.
