MCCC Provides In-Person, Online Open Houses in Spring

POTTSTOWN PA – Montgomery County Community College will host spring open house events live at each of its three locations in Lansdale, Blue Bell and Pottstown, as well as an entirely virtual event. They’re all scheduled between March 26 and April 21, are free to attend, and available to the public.

They get under way March 26 (2022; Saturday), from 10 a.m. to noon at the Culinary Arts Institute, 1400 Forty Foot Road, Lansdale. It includes opportunities for small group tours to learn more about the facility’s culinary arts, tourism and hospitality, and baking and pastry programs. College admissions and student support services representatives will be on hand to answer questions.

The series continues April 2 (Saturday) from 10 a.m. to noon. at the college main campus, 340 DeKalb Pike, Blue Bell, in its quad area. Prospective students can explore the campus, chat with alumni, take tours of the facilities, and connect in person with representatives from the offices of admissions, financial aid, career services, student support services, adult learner resources, workforce development, athletics, and others.

A third open house is planned April 9 (Saturday) from 10 a.m. to noon across the street from the Pottstown campus, at the Schuylkill River Trail Pavilion, 140 College Dr. This, too, will be an outdoor-only event, with chances to meet with representatives from college offices similar to those announced for Blue Bell.

Additionally, the event will showcase the exciting, new opportunities coming soon to campus. They include its Challenger Learning Center and Wellness Center, which will provide comprehensive assistance for individual needs, as well as access to in-person mental health therapy and the Stock-Up for Success Food Pantry.

Each of the three in-person events is subject to inclement weather and/or MCCC’s health and safety protocols. Visit the college webpage on the day of any event to confirm its status.

Finally, the college will host an online open house April 21 (Thursday) from 6 to 7 p.m. All prospective students, whether they attended an in-person event or not, are invited to attend the virtual program.
