Adults who are thinking about taking college classes can get the push they need to get started at one of Moraine Valley Community College’s free adult information sessions. Anyone looking to return to academia after years of being out of the classroom or who wants to improve job skills or change careers can discover the possibilities at these events.

A one-hour session is the first step for adults to learn about programs and resources at Moraine Valley in a relaxed setting. Adults who will benefit from this session include those who have never stepped foot on a college campus, are in a career transition, re-entering the workforce, returning to complete a degree or professional certificate, preparing for the high school equivalency, and those who have taken classes at the college but have not pursued a degree.

Moraine Valley offers adult information sessions on Wednesday, Feb. 8 and May 3 at 6 p.m., in the Student Services Center (Building S), Room S117A, on the main campus, 9000 W. College Pkwy., Palos Hills.

Sessions also will be held Tuesday, March 7 at 6:30 p.m., at the Education Center at Blue Island, 12940 S. Western Ave., and Thursday, April 6 at 6 p.m., at the Southwest Education Center, 17900 S. 94th Ave., in Tinley Park.

During the sessions, Moraine Valley staff will discuss details on the college and how to address challenges as a student. Career programs and degrees will be explained, as well as programs and resources for low-income adults, displaced workers and adults returning to the workplace. Attendees also can get help registering for classes.
