Waubonsee Community College Hosts Open House Events

Waubonsee Community College will host two open house events that will provide information on the college’s transfer programs and health care programs. In addition to information about the programs, the events will feature free food truck treats.

The first open house will be on Saturday, Oct. 21 from 1-4 p.m. at the Sugar Grove Campus, Route 47 at Waubonsee Drive. The focus at this event will be on the transfer student experience and what Waubonsee offers for the first two years of college, including an educational experience equivalent to four-year institutions, but at a lower cost.

Waubonsee faculty members, administrators and staff will be available to discuss transfer planning, financial aid and scholarships, academic programs and student activities.

Waubonsee has transfer programs in more than 30 areas of concentration, with the option to tailor a program to meet individual educational goals.

Another open house will be on Saturday, Nov. 4 from 1-4 p.m. at the Aurora Fox Valley Campus, 2060 Ogden Ave (Route 34 on the Rush-Copley Campus). This event will focus on Waubonsee’s health care education options. There will be students and faculty members on hand to discuss opportunities in registered nursing, surgical technology, phlebotomy and other health care programs.

Waubonsee’s Nursing Program is highly successful with 94 percent of the program’s graduates passing the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX) in 2016 compared to a pass rate of 85 percent both nationally and in the state of Illinois. Similarly, the college’s Surgical Technology Program has been recognized by the Board of Directors of the National Board of Surgical Technology and Surgical Assisting for its pass rate of more than 90 percent on the Certified Surgical Technologist exam for the exam cycle of August 2015 through July 2016.
