Posted on Wednesday, November 07, 2012

WYE MILLS – The 30th annual Eastern Shore College Night and Chesapeake College’s Talbot County Strategic Planning Listening Session – both postponed during Hurricane Sandy – have each been rescheduled.

College Night will take place from 6-7:30 p.m. on December 5th in the gymnasium on the college’s Wye Mills Campus. The Talbot County Strategic Planning Listening Session will take place in the Easton Branch of the Talbot County Free Library on November 26th starting at 7 p.m.

Eastern Shore College Night features representatives from over 120 colleges and universities who are available to talk with prospective students about their college choice. High school juniors and seniors in the process of selecting a college are encouraged to attend the event, which is free to the public and sponsored by both Chesapeake and the superintendents of the five Mid-Shore counties served by the college.

The listening sessions – taking place in all five of the college’s support counties – is an opportunity for local residents to help Chesapeake College plan for the future. Chesapeake officials are seeking public comments as the college updates its strategic plan for Fiscal Years 2014-18.

"We are talking to students, alumni, business leaders and community representatives to see what they think we should be doing to better serve the area. We think it is also important to have open sessions where anyone can ask questions and share their opinions about our services," Chesapeake President Dr. Barbara Viniar said. "We are the community’s college, and we want to know how to better provide for the area’s educational and training needs."

The schedule for the remaining listening sessions is as follows:

  • Monday, Nov. 12 at 7 p.m. in the Queen Anne’s County Free Library in Centreville.
  • Monday, Nov. 19 at 7 p.m. in the Caroline County Public Library in Denton.
  • Monday, November 26 at 7 p.m. in the Talbot County Free Library in Easton.
