OFTC Hosts Campus Visits for WCHS Seniors

SANDERSVILLE, GA -- With only a few weeks until high school graduation, approximately 200 local high school seniors converged on Oconee Fall Line Technical College’s (OFTC) North Campus to learn more about its programs and how to reach their academic and professional goals.

The students from Washington County, Hancock County, Jefferson County, and Glascock County high schools started their tours with discussions on admissions, financial aid and picking the right college or university. The students also had the opportunity to visit seven programs areas and participate in discussions about the field, ask questions about job possibilities and even try their hands at some new skills in some selected programs of study.

“Senior Day at OFTC is a great way for prospective students to learn about the diverse range degree, diploma and certificate programs we offer and find an area of study that fits their needs and aspirations,” OFTC High School Coordinator Shauna Andrews said in a press release. “From our technical and health care programs to business programs and early childhood care and education, we have something that each of these students can benefit from and learn here at OFTC.”

"Our theme for Senior Day this year was 'What Can OFTC Do For You?'" continued Andrews. "And we truly mean that. Our faculty teaches the skills necessary for employment, and our staff can help students with enrollment, registration, financial aid opportunities, job opportunities, and so much more."

OFTC works with area high schools each year, bringing interested students by for a taste of college life. Additionally, the college provides individual tours and information sessions by appointment.

“While many of the high school students had ideas about their future career plans already, there were several students who were not sure what the future held for them,” continued Andrews. “This is a great opportunity for them to see a wide variety of occupational fields that are offered close to home and at an affordable cost.”
