In its first inaugural year for this event, Linn-Benton Community College will open its main campus to all those in the community for “Explore LB” college preview night from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, April 14.

Attendees will be eligible for a 1-credit tuition waiver to enroll in college this fall.

Anyone interested in exploring the college’s 85-plus degree and certificate programs are welcome to attend, regardless of where they are in their educational pursuits. Potential students will interact with faculty and staff representing LBCC programs in health care, agriculture, business, applied industrial technology, arts and humanities, education and social services, and science and engineering.

Guests will view class demonstrations, tour LBCC campus spaces and more.

In addition, the event features the following:

• Student Life and Leadership representatives will be on hand to answer questions about what it is like to be an LBCC student, including how to get involved with clubs, sports and co-curricular groups.

• Advisers and support staff will be available to answer questions about resources available for students, including financial aid, accommodations, tutoring, dual enrollment with Oregon State University, and more.

• Admissions staff will help potential students apply for fall on-site. The application process is free and adds all those considering college to the college’s email system, which provides on-track advice for enrolling and accessing resources. 

“Whether you are currently in the workforce and considering a career change, considering a next step after high school, or just curious about what your options are, we look forward to welcoming you,” Jennifer Boehmer, executive director of Institutional Advancement, said through a press release. “LBCC offers affordable, high-quality options that will set you on the path to success — and we are here to help our community every step of the way.”
