Holland College Open House

We here at Holland College are so excited that our first Campus Tour Day event of the year is fast approaching. On Saturday, November 4th our campuses will be open from 10am – 1pm for prospective students (and friends and family) to come in for a visit. Campus Tour Day is the best way to experience what Holland College is all about. Bring your family and friends for a tour and find out about our programs, our facilities, and the services we offer. You’ll get a glimpse of college life and answers to all your questions. If you apply to your program of choice on that day, we will waive the application fee. It is a “drop in” format so you won’t have to be here from start to finish, just whatever time is convenient for you. Also, online registration is required. Anyone interested can click on the big blue button on the main page of our website. For your convenience, I’ve included the link within this email. If you could share this information with your students, we would really appreciate that! If you have any questions, feel free to contact me anytime. Have a great day!
