The Laurens Location of USC-U is having Open House this afternoon from 3:00 until 6:00. The Director of the Laurens location, Matt Dean, said they’re hoping to increase community awareness about what the University of South Carolina offers in Laurens, “and we also want to offer opportunities for potential students to come in and do as much as they can in one day. Everything from applying to getting financial aid to possibly registering for classes, if they have all their items.”
Matt Dean said the festivities today include a cookout, a tour of facilities and a chance to talk with the staff at the Laurens Location.
Dean also said the Laurens facility can help local residents get even a four-year degree locally. “They can do everything locally, from starting straight out from High School. We even serve a bunch of High School students in Laurens County. But also for returning adults, for students who’ve maybe already finished an Associate’s Degree and need a bachelor’s for their job or furthering their career. So we do a lot of completion programs right there in Laurens through the Palmetto College.”
Open House at USC-U’s Laurens Location is from 3:00 until 6:00 this afternoon.
