Last year's second annual TMCC Spring Open House took place in the V. James Eardley Student Center.

For the third straight year, Truckee Meadows Community College is offering an evening for the community to drop by, enjoy activities, attend workshops, and find out more about all of the college’s academic and occupational programs.

“I’d like to invite the community to TMCC’s 2018 Spring Open House,” said Miguel Martinez, College Recruitment Coordinator, Access, Outreach and Recruitment. “We’re welcoming everyone interested, adult learners and career-changers, and especially high school students from the area.”

  • When: Tuesday, April 10, 6–8 p.m.
  • Where: V. James Eardley Student Center, Dandini Campus, 7000 Dandini Blvd., in Reno

Attendees can drop in any time during the event and speak with faculty and representatives of the College departments. TMCC’s mascot, Wizard the Lizard will be available for picture opportunities, and students will receive free T-shirts, while supplies last.

The event is free and open to the public, and refreshments will be offered.

At the departmental showcase, academic and student service programs are hosting tables in the Student Center. Tours of the Dandini Campus will leave from the tabling area, announced at the microphone. Another feature of the Spring Open House will be a set of workshops in nearby classrooms. The workshops are presented in both English and Spanish.

  • Department showcase: 6–6:45 p.m.
  • Workshops: 6:45–7:15 p.m.
  • Department showcase: 7:15–8 p.m.

“The Spring Open House provides prospective students and their families with the opportunity to tour the campus, meet faculty and staff, learn about TMCC programs and degree options, and sit in on an information session,” said Yuli Chavez, Program Director of Access, Outreach and Recruitment. “They will have an opportunity to learn why TMCC is the best choice for them.”

Each person who attends the event and fills out an evaluation will be entered into a raffle for the chance to win a grand prize of a free three-credit class.
