West Virginia Junior College incoming freshman were joined by their family and friends, on June 19, for our Freshman Experience Day. Students were given the opportunity to get to know one another, be introduced to staff and faculty, and meet with their program coordinators. Vanessa Jo Parker, an incoming Medical Assistant student said, “My family and I enjoyed Freshman Experience Day very much. It was so delightful seeing the family atmosphere that WVJC offers. It made me feel more at ease knowing this is where I chose to go to school.”
Aaron Jones, a WVJC graduate and the Information Technology Coordinator at WVJC-Bridgeport was the keynote speaker for the event. He was able to give future students and their guests a look into what they can accomplish by attending WVJC. He had this to say about the event: “It was a very inspirational day. It did my heart good to see so many students there and also so many people behind them to support them.”
At the closing of the event, students and their parents also had the opportunity to win great prizes, which were generously donated by several local businesses, as well as have lunch with fellow students, faculty, and staff of WJVC Bridgeport.
