Trail Blazer Visit Day

Thu. 11th of Oct. 2018 at 5:30 pm


John Wood Community College will host Trail Blazer Day Thursday, October 11, for prospective students and their families to visit the College, meet professors and students and learn about academic programs and student life activities. 

The event will take place from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at JWCC’s Quincy campus at 1301 South 48th Street.  Students and their parents and/or families will tour the campus, learn about scholarships and financial aid, hear about JWCC’s 30 academic majors, learn where JWCC graduates transfer or begin employment and have the opportunity to interact with current students. Dinner will be provided to students, parents and families. 

Parents and prospective students will also have the opportunity to participate in a question and answer dialogue with current JWCC students, administrators and faculty during the event.

“Many students feel like they know a lot about John Wood because it is in their backyard,” Kristen Ritterbusch, JWCC admissions director said.  “When they take the time to visit campus, many find that we more than exceed their expectations in terms of our faculty, academic programs, facilities and student life. Trail Blazer Day is our way of inviting everyone to see what their community college can offer.” 

Reservations may be made at or by calling the JWCC admissions office at 217.641.4337.
