Public Invited to Regional College Night

Posted on Friday, October 29, 2004

Chesapeake College will host its annual Eastern Shore College Night on Thursday, Nov.18 in the college gymnasium from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.

Representatives from more than 150 universities, colleges and technical schools will give students and their parents information about a variety of institutions. The event is sponsored by Chesapeake College and the school superintendents from Caroline, Dorchester, Kent, Queen Anne’s and Talbot counties.

College representatives from as far away as Colorado and Vermont will travel to the Eastern Shore for this comprehensive presentation.

"It’s an excellent opportunity for both students and parents to be exposed to a large number of colleges in a single setting. The evening offers students as early as the 10th grade a chance to begin focusing on their higher education plans," said Richard Midcap, vice president for Enrollment Management and Student Services at Chesapeake College. "We expect our usual large crowd."

Some of the schools scheduled to attend the event are: the U.S. Air Force Academy (Colo.), East Carolina University, Norwich University (Vt.), the Culinary Institute of America, Cornell University, and the University of Rhode Island. In addition, many Maryland, Delaware and Pennsylvania colleges will send representatives to Wye Mills for the evening.
