Scottsdale Community College announces an open house community event 2-5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 4, at Two Waters Circle, in the heart of SCC’s campus. The event is free and open to the public.
Dubbed "Artie Palooza" in honor of SCC's Artie the Artichoke mascot, this free outdoor festival invites the public to experience the SCC campus and discover the array of academic programs and student services offered.
Visitors can take part in interactive and hands-on demonstrations from SCC’s departments, including Art, STEM, Nursing, Exercise Science, Career Services, Culture and Society, Counseling, Interior Design, Visual Communication, Environmental Science and Geology, Business, Service Learning, Equine Science, Computer Information Systems, the Center for Native & Urban Wildlife, World Languages and more.
SCC students from the Dance, Music, American Indian Program and Creative Writing departments will share their talents through captivating performances. There will also be games, face painting, sidewalk chalk art, many make-and-take activities and prizes. The event culminates with an iron pour demonstration by the Sculpture program.
“The purpose of this event is for neighbors and the general public to explore our many academic and occupational programs in a fun, festive environment,” said SCC President Eric Leshinskie. “Everyone is invited to experience Scottsdale Community College’s beautiful campus and caring college community.”
Representatives from Student Affairs will also be available to respond to enrollment questions.
