Feather River College is happy to introduce Plumas & Sierra County high school freshman to the FRC collegiate experience in hopes of inspiring them to attend college after high school, and hopefully, making FRC their first choice!
PUSD high school freshman students will arrive on campus and meet in the gym for a brief introduction to the day’s events and schedule. Students will then break off according to their designated cohorts to begin attending different sessions across campus. FRC will be offering 3 different sessions for students to attend during their time here. One session in the gym that focuses on our academic and student resources, and will feature resource tables that allow students to interact with these different offerings in a more personal manner. One session will be a campus tour, and one session will be a hands-on academic experience through one of our CTE hands-on programs. All other academics offerings will be represented in the gym session.
Students will then be fed a lunch that they can either eat on campus or take home with them. We will also be providing students with a healthy breakfast snack upon arrival!
Our FRC Vice President of Student Services, Carlie McCarthy, will cover all the different representatives in gym for the day. Carlie will also provide a quick blurb on each program and why they are important to prospective students. She will also introduce our FRC program and academic reps who will be in attendance with her.
