Walters State Community College plans a fall semester Adult Learner Kickoff on Monday, Aug. 5, on the Morristown Campus. The event is free and will be held in the R. Jack Fishman Library. Students can come anytime between 4 p.m.-7 p.m.

“We understand that attending college while taking care of your family and job responsibilities is quite an undertaking. This event is an opportunity  get started on a successful semester,” said Erin Dean, coordinator of adult learners and counselor at Walters State.
Students will have the chance to print their class schedule and locate classroom locations during an optional tour. Representatives from financial aid, career testing and veterans affairs will also be available.
