The Open House is designed to provide prospective students with a “one stop shop” to learn about the College’s 75+ degree and certificate programs, meet with faculty, work with advisors to build out their academic schedules, register for summer and fall classes, and learn about financial aid, scholarships and grants.

“Open House is a great opportunity for prospective students of all ages and their families to visit our main campus, learn about Temple College, and have all of their questions answered,” said Eric Eckert, Temple College’s Executive Director of Strategic Communications and Outreach.

The Open House will feature food, games, music, photo opportunities with the Temple College Leopard and door prizes. Prospective students who complete a scavenger hunt will qualify for a grand-prize drawing for one free class in the fall.

“We are here to work with students and help them take the next steps in their academic and career journeys. It’s our hope that every student who attends Temple College will earn the degrees and certificates necessary to move into the workforce or transfer to a four-year university,” Eckert said.
