COC & Hart District Host SCV College Day

More than thirty colleges and universities will descend on

College of the Canyons on Saturday, September 30, for Santa Clarita Valley

College Day 2006.  Representatives will be on hand to provide information

about their schools and programs to college-bound high school students and

their parents. The event will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Sponsored by College of the Canyons and the Wm. S. Hart Union School

District, the day will feature a mall-like area where students can stop and

speak with representatives of the schools. Workshops and presentations are

also scheduled that will provide in-depth discussions of admissions

procedures, financial aid processes, insights into the UC and CSU systems,

and much more.

"We are thrilled to host the 2006 College Day at College of the Canyons,"

said Debbie Rio, Director, Admissions, Records & Online Services for the

College.  "This is the third year that College Day has been held on the COC

campus," said Rio, "and attendance has grown dramatically.  Parents and

students," stressed Rio, "are finding that the information and insights

about the admissions processes of various colleges and universities are

invaluable during the application process."

College Day is also an opportunity for parents and students to get

acquainted with the COC campus since recent studies show that 60 percent or

more of William S. Hart Unified School District graduates go on to attend

College of the Canyons. For parents and students interested in finding out

more about what College of the Canyons has to offer, several departments

will have representatives on hand to answer questions and several buildings

on campus will be open for visitation, such as the biology and biotechnology

labs, the transfer center and career services.

Admission to the event is free as is parking in the COC lots.
