Owens Findlay-area Campus Hosts 'Registration Rocks'

FINDLAY - Area high school seniors are invited to learn about Owens Community College's many educational opportunities during a fun-filled event as the College hosts "Registration Rocks." The event will occur March 21, 23, 30 and April 1.

High school seniors can sign up for any day of "Registration Rocks" which runs from 8:30 a.m. - 3 p.m. on the College's Findlay-area Campus. Owens is located on the corner of Cory and Davis streets. Attendees are required to RSVP prior to the event.

"'Registration Rocks' is a great opportunity for prospective students to receive academic advising, as well as register for summer and fall classes all in one fun-filled day," said Verne Walker, Owens Director of Student Services at the Findlay-area Campus. "Owens Community College is excited to once again host an event where students can take the first step toward their career aspirations by pursuing a high quality college education."

Throughout each day, students will be able to meet with faculty and staff members, take the Owens placement test (waived with ACT or SAT scores) and pick up important information about financial aid, student activities, local housing and academic program offerings. In addition, a separate program on learning to support your children in college will be offered to parents who attend "Registration Rocks."

Seniors will have the opportunity to win various raffle prizes during each day, including Owens baseball caps, T-shirts, sweatshirts and more. The grand prize winner of "Registration Rocks" will receive tickets to the Rock n' Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in Cleveland. Additionally, attendees will be provided with a free lunch during their visit.
