PIQUA — Students from Piqua Junior High recently visited Edison State Community College for the seventh annual Campus Visit Day program. The entire eighth-grade class, consisting of approximately 300 students, visited the Piqua Campus over the course of two days.
Throughout their visit, students met with various departments on campus to explore education and career opportunities. Students attended breakout sessions, which included “College 101,” campus tours, career assessment, fitness fun, and Top 10 Choices – which taught students about the positive choices they could make to help them achieve their career goals.
“Each year, I look forward to having the Piqua eighth grade students come to campus. It’s always engaging, fun, and informative,” said Stacey Bean, enrollment ranager at Edison State.
“Creating awareness early helps students build a positive perception of higher education opportunities and realize that college, especially Edison State, is definitely an option for them.”
During lunch, students assembled in the cafeteria to participate in the talent show, “PJHS Has Talent,” with this year’s winners receiving prizes from the campus bookstore. Students ended the day by participating in a game of “Jeopardy” that tested their knowledge of information learned during their visit.
