Meridian, Miss. New or returning students gathered Friday at Meridian Community College for a big back-to-school expo.
The interactive event at MCC was a chance for new students to apply, learn about scholarships and programs.
Returning students could check on their financial aid and books.
Door prizes and even scholarships were given away during the expo.
College recruiter Adrian Cross says it's a great opportunity to inform everyone about MCC's programs:
"One thing we're trying to do is introduce the community to the programs we have for career and technical, such as hotel/restaurant management, culinary arts, industrial maintenance and graphic design," said Cross.
Anyone interested in MCC who didn't get a chance to attend the event may get information by calling 601-481-1357.
