Rich Mountain Community College held their first ‘on-campus’ Senior Day on Wednesday, September 10. Students from Mena, Acorn, Cossatot River, Oden, Mt. Ida, and Waldron high schools were welcomed by RMCC President Phillip Wilson in the new Ouachita Center.
A presentation on admissions, degrees, and programs was given by Brandon Burk. Mary Standerfer gave presentation on financial aid and Jared McCormick talked about the perks of choosing RMCC, such as getting a quality education at a lower cost, free tutoring, student support services, etc.
After presentations, students had the opportunity to talk with department representatives and learn what each department offers.
After lunch was served, the Student Government Association held their annual SGA Fun Day on the lawn, complete with bounce houses and other fun activities. The SGA holds this event each year for students of RMCC, but decided to combine the event and share the fun with the area’s seniors.
In all, approximately 425 seniors attended the day’s events.
