INA, Ill. – Students interested in Rend Lake College’s Applied Science and Technology Division will get a chance to learn more about what’s offered at an upcoming open house.
Families and students are encouraged to attend the open house, 6-8 p.m March 30, that will include tours of the facilities and some face time with many of the faculty members in programs like agriculture, agricultural business, agricultural mechanics, agricultural production, automotive technology, coal mining technology, computer programming, culinary arts, diesel technology, graphic design, heavy equipment technology, industrial electronics and maintenance technician, industrial technology, IT systems assistant, IT systems specialist, office systems technology, welding, wireless communications technology, and viticulture and enology.
Lisa Payne, vice president of career-technical instruction at RLC, said the open house will have something to offer individuals from all walks of life, and at different stages in their education and careers.
“This is going to be a great opportunity for the student who knows he or she is going to enroll in an applied science or advanced technology program to come with your family and meet the instructors you will be spending the next year or two with, and take a look around the facilities,” she said. “And for you students who are still deciding, it will be good time spent learning more about what this division has to offer, and how RLC can help you reach your educational and career goals.”
Payne added that door prizes and refreshments will be handed out at the open house. It all starts at 6 p.m., in room 102 of the Mark S. Kern Applied Science Center on the campus in Ina.
