PIQUA — Nearly 350 Upper Valley Career Center students were on Edison State Community College’s Piqua Campus Friday, Oct. 28, for the third annual Experience Edison event. The junior and senior classes of Upper Valley CC toured the campus and engaged in breakout sessions, which highlighted the College’s various fields of study.
“It was clear that the students enjoyed their time on campus,” said Stacey Bean, enrollment manager at Edison State. “This event provides a great opportunity for students to meet with faculty to learn about the direct pathways and articulation agreements held between Upper Valley Career Center and Edison State.”
While on campus, students participated in hand-on activities with Edison State instructors, which paralleled their field of study at Upper Valley Career Center. Breakout sessions included such career program areas as Engineering, Computer Information Technology, Early Childhood Education, Physical Therapy, Business, Office Systems and Administration, Nursing, Phlebotomy, and Medical Laboratory Technician.
Enrollment managers also highlighted the unique pathways that have been developed specifically for Upper Valley Career Center students. These opportunities provide students with a direct pathway from Upper Valley Career Center to Edison State, allowing them to make optimal use of their time and money.
“By choosing Edison State, these students have the potential to earn college credit while still in high school and save a lot of money in the process.”
