AUBURN – Central Maine Community College will kick off Community College Month by holding an open house from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, April 1, on the campus.

“We hope to see people who are just thinking about starting a college career,” said Elizabeth Oken, director of admissions. “We will have a variety of resources here that day – representatives from admissions and financial aid and many of our academic departments.”

In addition, faculty members and other college personnel will be available to provide information on options for transferring to four-year colleges and placement services and to give tours of the college.

A representative of the Western Maine University and Community College Center in South Paris will also be on hand with information about summer and fall classes to be held there.

Refreshments and door prizes will be available. People who attend the open house will be able to enroll in summer courses, even though the open enrollment period officially begins on Monday, April 3.

A special feature will be an appearance by wildlife artist David A. Footer. Footer, who also serves as an instructor in the building construction program, will offer potential students a numbered and signed print of his limited edition “The Last of Lower Dam.” The prints were made by the graphic arts/printing technology students.

Central Maine Community College offers 28 career and technical programs, as well as the general studies and liberal studies programs that are designed as the first two years of a four-year degree. Students may participate in a variety of extracurricular activities, including athletics. Housing is available on campus. For more information, call 755-5273.
