If you've thought about going to college but just aren't sure if it's for you or where to begin, come "test drive" Ivy Tech Community College, 915 South Zinc Mill Road in Greencastle, on Saturday, October 26, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The first 100 visitors will receive a free Ivy Tech t-shirt.
Enter the "showroom" and embark on a self-guided test drive or choose an accompanied test drive with a tour guide. Each "exit" off the Campus Highways will lead to destinations where you will explore the College. Check out how you look in the driver's seat as you maneuver through features like affordability, mileage, options, trade-in value, comfort and more. Seven exits will have information about the school and five others will provide demonstrations of specific educational programs offered by the College. Staff and students will serve as guides in each area.
"This is a fun event that allows you to visit and tour campus and see our innovative programs and technology in action," said Melanie Boesen, vice chancellor/executive dean at Ivy Tech Community College in Greencastle.
The showroom will have a "refueling station" with popcorn. WREB will broadcast live and provide music. The sponsor of the event, York Automotive Family in Greencastle, Crawfordsville and Brazil, will also be on site providing test drives.
The event is free and open to the public. For more information, call 765-653-7410.
