Kilgore College will host its annual Ranger Preview Day Saturday, Oct. 12, to give potential students an opportunity to learn more about the college.

The event is free and open to anyone interested in learning more about Kilgor College.

Instructors will be available to answer questions at an academic and organizations fair where students and parents can learn more about financial aid, scholarships, admissions, choosing a college major, career pathways and residential life.

Prospective students will also learn about “Focus to Finish,” the college’s program that divides most courses into eight-week terms instead of the traditional 16-week courses.

“We are excited to have prospective students on campus,” said Chris Gore, dean of enrollment management and student success. “The day will be a great opportunity for potential students to learn more about the college and to experience what being a Kilgore College student is all about.”

Participants can also take guided campus tours and learn about on-campus extracurricular activities.

Those interested can register for Preview Day online at www.kilgore.edu/previewday .
