Area high school students tour vet tech facility

Even in the midst of summer vacation, area high school students are thinking abut next year's inevitable college admissions craze, preparing by visiting schools, talking with admissions reps and ticking off standing in line at financial aid counters.

In order to help students navigate their college visit experiences, Maple Woods created Monarch Days, which give groups interested in a specific program, like education, veterinary technology or GIS, a chance to meet faculty, sit in on a class, and explore everything the program has to offer.

Recently, a group decided to tour the MCC-Maple Woods Vet Tech facility to get a feel for the program, the instructors and for campus life. After a rundown of admissions requirements and an overview of the programs, the students got a personal tour of the lab, classrooms and barn and met some of the staff they'll be working with if they decide to continue the program.
