Grove City College’s Hopeman School of Science, Engineering and Mathematics will host Discovery Day for prospective students on Saturday, Oct. 12.
This admissions event is designed for high school students interested in scientific fields at Grove City College. Current students majoring in Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Engineering, Exercise Science, Mathematics and Physics will welcome high school students interested in the STEM disciplines. Throughout the day, professors and current College students display research and samples of their work and prospective students will attend breakout sessions to learn more about their chosen department.
“As the entomology professor, I always put out samples from the College’s insect collection – especially the showy ‘oh my’ butterflies and moths,” Dr. Steve Jenkins, professor of Biology said. “The displays prompt conversations with prospective students and their parents in which we can to tell them about the strengths and uniqueness of Grove City College’s biology classes.”
High schoolers can also learn about the new Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree offered by the Charles Jr. and Betty Johnson School of Nursing. The program, offered in conjunction with Butler County Community College (BC3), begins enrolling its first class in the fall of 2020. Students will benefit from an excellent liberal arts and sciences education from Grove City College and accredited, high quality technical and clinical professional training through BC3.
Discovery day is a great way for high school students to get a taste of the reality of studying a specific field in college. Many past attendees now study at Grove City College. For more information or to register for the event, visit Hopeman Discovery Day.
