The administrators of Florida Keys Community College invite prospective students and their families to attend an open house at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at the Key West campus, 5901 College Road. The event is designed to introduce future students to the numerous academic programs available at the college and to provide guidance through the enrollment process. The regular $30 application fee will be waived for those who submit an application during the event.

Prospective students will meet faculty, staff and current students who will provide information about academic and career training programs; financial aid and scholarship opportunities; learning support resources; and student clubs and activities. Concurrently, family members will participate in a "President to Parent" forum led by college President Jonathan Gueverra, on guiding and assisting soon-to-be college students.

Pizza and refreshments will be served.

Those interested in attending the open house are asked to RSVP by contacting recruiter Laura Estevez at 305-809-3247 or laura.estevez@fkcc.edu.
