Prospective students who have been admitted to Purdue University North Central and plan to major in Biology, Nursing or Health Sciences during the upcoming fall semester, are invited to a College of Science Reception on Tuesday, April 29 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. to learn more about the many opportunities that PNC has to offer.

The prospective students are asked to bring their parents and together they will get a first-hand look at the PNC College of Science, its exciting academic programs and the career options that are open to students who earn these popular and marketable degrees.

“We want students to know that we are the right place for them,” said Dr. Chris Holford, dean of the PNC College of Science. “Many of our students go on to graduate studies and professional schools; they pursue meaningful careers. Our students have a tremendous record of accomplishment.”

PNC College of Science graduates have gone on study in pharmacy, medical, dental, veterinary, and graduate schools located throughout the country.

The reception will give prospective students and parents the opportunity to meet with PNC faculty and department chairs to learn more about the academic programs, curriculum and careers.

Current PNC students will lead tours so the prospective students will hear from students themselves about the programs and what students can look forward to at PNC. Prospective students and their parents are encouraged to bring their questions.

There will be chemistry demonstrations, as well as a close-up look at the Nursing lab and the Nursing “Sim” lab where students have a variety of hands-on skills lab opportunities utilizing mannequins and models. The athletic training offices and work area will be open so that students can learn more about athletics and physical therapy.

In addition, there will be informational displays set up for prospective students and their parents so that they can meet representatives from PNC admissions, financial aid departments, academic advising Graduate and  Extended Learning, Student Success Center, Student Support Services to discuss the wide range of opportunities and services that PNC has to offer. PNC athletics and clubs will also be on hand to introduce the many co-curricular opportunities available to enhance the educational journey.   Getting involved early in clubs is encouraged not only for increasing learning opportunities and networking, but also for helping meet lifelong friends.

Every student who completes the event will receive a PNC College of Science lab coat to keep.
