Purdue University North Central will host a campus open house on Thursday, Nov. 14 in the Library-Student-Faculty Building for prospective students of all ages and their families. The open house will begin at 4:30 p.m. with specific programming  for high school students now earning Purdue credits through the Concurrent Enrollment/ Dual Credit Program who intend to enroll at PNC.

The general open house for all other prospective students will begin at 5:30 p.m. Campus tours will be offered at 5:30 and 6:15 p.m. An Academic, Student Service and Activity Fair will continue throughout the evening where students can explore majors, clubs and activities and discover the various types of assistance that PNC offers to support student success.

A breakout session will offer a look at campus life through the eyes of PNC students. Information about the basics of paying for college and financial aid will be covered in the session.

A separate breakout session will discuss the needs and interests of transfer students.

The open house is expected to conclude at 7:30 p.m.

This event is appropriate for high school students, community college graduates, veterans and adults thinking about attending college.
