PBSC hosts open house recruitment events
Palm Beach State College has kicked off a series of open house recruitment events for new, returning and prospective students to learn more about the College, complete the admissions process and get ready for the fall term.
The first open house, which was one of the College’s largest in-person events since going remote due to the COVID-19 pandemic, was held July 15 on the Lake Worth campus. There will be a second one at Lake Worth from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 5.
“It’s so exciting to see all of you here in person,” Dr. Stephen Joyner, associate vice president for enrollment and retention, told the crowd during the July 15 event. “After more than a year of separation and taking classes remotely and working from home it’s so nice to be back together again. Today’s event is all about you getting to know us and about us helping you get ready to start off strong in the fall.”
Joyner also mentioned that any student (regardless of whether they attend an open house) who registers for at least one credit hour in the fall will automatically receive $1,000 from the CARES Act: Higher Education Emergency Relief Fund to use toward tuition and fees and/or personal expenses.
Themed Back on Campus, Back on Track, the events not only celebrate the return to in-person learning but feature sessions on new student orientation, application and registration assistance, financial aid, PBSC’s program offerings and more as well as games, food trucks and giveaways.
“These events are great opportunities for students to engage with staff, while being immersed in the PBSC culture on-campus and starting the next step in their educational journey,” said Outreach Program Specialist Keana Roberts.
