Pellissippi State’s Blount County Campus hosts Feb. 16 open house

Whether you’re a prospective student or would just like to see Blount County’s newest college facility, you are invited to an open house at the Blount County Campus of Pellissippi State Community College Feb. 16, 4-6 p.m. The campus is located at 2731 W. Lamar Alexander Pkwy.

Opened in August 2010, the two-story, 70,485-square-foot building is home to the Nursing program (along with the Magnolia Avenue Campus in Knoxville), the state-of-the-art Manufacturing Tech Lab, an amphitheatre, and science and computer labs and classrooms, including one for distance education.

“It’s really an opportunity for prospective students and the community—particularly anyone who didn’t get to attend the grand opening—to take the time to see what Pellissippi State’s Blount County Campus offers,” said Holly Burkett, assistant dean of the site.

Prospective students attending the event will get all the information necessary for a smooth entrance into college life, including how-tos on admission and financial aid and info on services for students with disabilities, dual enrollment and degrees offered. The community also can learn about educational and training opportunities offered through the college’s non-credit division, Business and Community Services.
