California State University, Bakersfield will help high school students, parents and transfer students at the sixth annual Kern County College Night slated for Tuesday (Sept. 13), from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Rabobank Convention Center. College Night organizers expect thousands of prospective college students to visit the 110 college and university representatives from across the nation.
“This is a great opportunity for students and their parents to really explore their options,” said Steve Watkin, CSUB Director of Outreach. “It will allow them to ask questions and start their college planning.”
Students can learn about the cost of college, classes that will be offered and the transfer process.
Watkin said a variety of CSUB programs and departments will be represented including all academic schools, financial aid and University Outreach.
In addition, local high school and college counselors will be available to answer questions. Information sessions for parents and students start at 6:30 p.m. Session topics include financial aid and scholarships. Spanish sessions will also be available.
Kern County College Night is free, but the Convention Center charges to park in its lots. There is alternate parking in the surrounding areas. For additional information log onto http://ci.kern.org/college/ or call CSUB University Outreach at (661) 654-3138.
