Open House: Tips and Tools for Success
When it comes to your professional pathway, you want to ensure each step is the right one. Include our Open House as part of your process.
This free event for career builders is held twice annually and provides a plethora of options for you. However, where do you begin? Who should you talk to? What’s the first step?
That’s where we come in. Keep reading for your guide to this event designed specifically for your advancement.
It’s free, but registration is highly encouraged!
Don’t get stuck in the check-in line filling out forms. Instead, sign up today for a session (or two!) on our website. When you arrive, our friendly team will provide a KSU bag filled with essential items for your Open House experience.
It’s a well-oiled machine.
In 2.5 carefully planned hours, you’ll have access to multiple information sessions about the program(s) of your choice. Check the schedule you’re given at check-in for time and room number. Announcements throughout the night will also alert you to upcoming sessions.
But … the struggle can be real.
We get it — there might be 2 sessions starting at the same time and you to have pick one. Don’t let this be a source of frustration. Simply head toward the fountain where friendly KSU staffers — look for the people wearing the yellow ribbons — will be available to provide information about your course of interest. Our instructors often stick around after the session, so you might also be able to talk with them exclusively.
You’ll save money by showing up.
We appreciate you carving out time in your schedule for us so we have little something for you. An exclusive discount coupon is offered at our Open House, which offers significant savings on course registration(s) for quite a few programs. (You can use your savings to buy a nice frame for your professional certificate that you’ll receive at graduation!)
