Illinois Valley Community College’s Admissions Office hosts “My Turn to Learn Adult Student Welcome Reception” from 5 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, July 23 in the cafeteria.

This free event is for all prospective and current adult students attending IVCC to help ease them into the college routine by meeting fellow adult students, alumni and IVCC employees.

Student Recruitment Specialist Gracelyn Quesse said “Adult students are role models to their own families, fellow employees and friends. They typically are juggling family life as well as work and this event can help them get their footing as they take on school.”

Families are invited to attend with the student and there will be refreshments and activities for kids. RSVP at www.ivcc.edu/events.
