Chattanooga State Open House Set For Nov. 3

Monday, October 22, 2018

Chattanooga State Community College will host its Fall Open House on Saturday, Nov. 3, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Upon arrival, visitors may park in lot P1 located in front of the Albright Omniplex Building and check in at the Amphitheater where they will be welcomed and given information about the day’s activities.

ChattState’s Open House presents opportunities for prospective students and their families to meet and chat with administrators, faculty, staff, and students.

Tour the campus, visit labs, learn about admissions, financial aid and scholarships, career planning, student activities and campus organizations. Adults age 24+, may learn about returning to college tuition-free with the TN Reconnect scholarship. Reconnect information sessions are scheduled at 10 a.m., 11 a.m., and noon in IMC-124. These free sessions are highly recommended for any adult who desires to begin or return to college.

Although all areas will be open for tours, ChattState’s Engineering and Information Technologies division also will include hands-on demonstrations in the fields of welding, robotics, radiation protection, and more. Visitors may park on the west end of the campus in lot P17 to access the CETAS-WACKER building.

Open House is a perfect time to explore ChattState’s 100+ degree and certificate programs that prepare students for associate and associate of applied science degrees, technical and institutional certificates, transfer to four-year institutions, or immediate entrance into the job market.

Home to the only fully embedded technical college on a Tennessee community college campus, the college consistently offers a high quality education with an 18:1 student-to-teacher ratio, 97 percent job placement rate, and 98 percent licensure pass rate.
