Monday, July 09, 2012

Chattanooga State Community College will hold its third annual Family Fish Fry in July on Saturday, July 21, from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. The event will take place outside of the Student Center in the heart of the main campus. The event is free and open to the public. Free parking will also be available for those who attend.

Members of the Student Affairs team will be available to assist guests with completing the admissions process, applying for financial aid, academic assessment, advising, registering for fall classes, paying fees, or completing any other unfinished tasks.

Fall classes begin on Saturday, Aug. 25. Due to the hectic nature of the fall semester, completing all of the components of admission and registration in advance prepares new students for a successful start at Chattanooga State. The Family Fish Fry provides a relaxing and enjoyable environment for guests to complete the enrollment process.
