To help studentsand their parents choose their next step in their educational journey, Lone Star College-Kingwood will host a Senior Night on Nov. 7 from 6-8 p.m. in the Student-Conference Center. The goal is to inform students and parents on services and programs offered at the college.

“The event’s purpose is to help high school juniors and seniors prepare for college and point them in the right direction toward educational success.  We will also provide information to parents on how they can help support their students both emotionally and financially during this process,” said Nicole Keenan, director of Admissions and Outreach.

At Senior Night, the community will receive information that will provide the necessary tools on making achoice between attending a community college or a four-year institution. Several professorswill be on hand via panel discussion directed toward different degree plans, careers that students can pursue with said degree, and transfer options.

“For parents, a panel discussion will be presented by parents of our students who will talk about real-life concerns that parents may have about their students going to college,” Keenan said.

A financial aid representative willalso be available to speak with parents and students on options they can explore to pay for college.
