Treutlen County Students Tour Southeastern Tech’s Vidalia Campus
January 15, 2014 - Students from Treutlen County High School toured Southeastern Technical College’s Vidalia campus on Jan. 13.
Staff from the college led four groups across the campus over the course of the day, introducing the sophomores and juniors to the facilities, faculty and programs at the school. In addition to the tour, students took the Compass test, a college placement test that determines if they are “program ready” and can participate in dual enrollment courses.
“It is critical that high school students ‘test the waters’ and explore future careers early,” said Kathryn Smith, high school coordinator for Southeastern Tech.
Shortly before noon, the students were given lunch in the Tattnall Auditorium and watched a presentation from STC staff on financial aid and dual enrollment opportunities.
“Students need to be fully aware of all the college opportunities that they have available to them while they are still in high school, and taking a tour exposes them to all of the available options through dual enrollment and after high school,” said Smith.
The tour comes one month after another tour given to Johnson County High School students on the school’s Swainsboro campus.
“We hope to host more tours with Treutlen County High School and other schools in our service delivery area,” said Smith.
