Get ready for this year's Open House

Doors will open to prospective students at this year's Open House, Tuesday, April 19, 9:30 a.m.-1 p.m., at South Campus.

At the Open House, visitors can tour the campus, talk with financial aid experts, learn about scholarships and grants, worker retraining, Running Start and Technical High School and more.
