LSC-Tomball to Host College Night

Glossy brochures and polished Web sites show only one side of a college or university.  That’s why it's best to visit schools of interest, but that requires a lot of time and money.  Recognizing this challenge, Lone Star College-Tomball is bringing the colleges and universities to the students.

On October 11, from 6 to 8 p.m. in LSC-Tomball’s Student Commons, the Advising & Counseling Office of LSC-Tomball will be hosting “College Night.”  Local college and high school students will have an opportunity to spend time with college university representatives and discuss issues of interest including admissions requirements, programs being offered, and other information to help a student choose the right college or university.

More than 50 colleges and universities — including community colleges, Texas state universities, private universities and out-of-state universities — are planning to attend the event for LSC-Tomball and Tomball High School, Magnolia High School, Magnolia West High School and other surrounding area high school students.  Colleges and universities scheduled to attend include:
