Lakes Region Community College is hosting an Open House Express Wednesday from 4 to 7 p.m. Faculty and staff will be on hand to answer questions and help all prospective students through the process. Students who bring a copy of their high school transcript or equivalency certificate may be accepted on the spot and can register immediately for the fall semester, which begins Aug. 26. Members of LRCC’s Financial Aid office will be available to help students through the financial aid application process, and faculty and advisors from each program will be available to help students register for classes and answer questions. To further help prospective students, anyone registering for twelve or more credits for the spring will automatically be entered into a free class giveaway and could win a free class for the fall term. The event is free and all those interested are encouraged to attend. Register at lrcc.edu or call 366-5210.
It’s that wonderful time of year – back to school for our future scientists, teachers, artists, social workers, or whatever they chose to become. Some students in our community need help to return to school with the clothing and supplies necessary in making their first days successful. If you would like to shop for a student, purchase general school supplies, or make a donation please call Marilyn Breesaw at Hopkinton Human Services 746-8244 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you’re writing a check, please make it out to Hopkinton Human Services and put School Supplies on the memo line. Checks can be dropped off at Town Hall or mailed to Hopkinton Human Services, 330 Main St., Hopkinton, 03229.
