Anyone thinking about attending Nicolet can learn more about the college, its academic programs, and the careers graduates can pursue during College Visit Day, Friday, Oct. 27.
The event will run from 9:30 a.m. to noon in the Lakeside Center on the Nicolet Campus.
Those attending will be able to connect with a career coach to learn about mapping a plan for college, completing the application, and paying for college.
Student will also have a chance to get a feel for the college's labs and classrooms and meet with instructors.
"This is a great way for anyone to see what the college has to offer and see if Nicolet is right for them," Nicolet Director of Enrollment Erika Warning said in a press release.
Nicolet offers 67 different academic credentials. These range from short-term certificates that can be earned in one semester to two-year associate's degrees, all of which transfer to four-year campuses for students who have their eyes set on earning a bachelor's degree.
"For me, Nicolet was the perfect place to start," said recent culinary arts graduate Dan Resch, who worked his way up to chef at a top local restaurant while earning his associate's degree. He plans to transfer his Nicolet credits to the University of Wisconsin-Stout to earn his bachelor's degree in hotel, restaurant, and tourism Management.
Resch's path is common, Warning explained.
"Students in many different programs will start by earning a certificate, use that to get a job in their field of study, and continue taking classes to earn a more advanced one-year technical diploma or a two-year associate's degree to advance in their career," Warning said.
She also noted that many students attend part-time, taking only one or two classes a semester, in academic programs that offer a wide variety of delivery options. These include online classes, hybrid classes that feature a mix of face-to-face and online classes, and evening classes, along with traditional daytime labs and lectures offered at a variety of times.
Along with being more affordable than many other colleges, Nicolet also offers a full range of scholarships, grants and other financial aid opportunities to help students pay for their educations, Warning explained.
She also noted that the latest Graduate Follow-Up Report shows that 93 percent of the graduates from the class of 2016 indicated they were satisfied or very satisfied with their Nicolet education. Many academic programs also posted a 100 percent job placement rate in graduates' field of study.
