“There are many people who delayed their education because of
uncertainty caused by the pandemic, and the upcoming winter 2021
semester is a great opportunity to get back on track,” said
Tina Hoxie, associate provost and dean of Student Affairs.
“Opportunities such as Futures for Frontliners and the Grand
Rapids Promise Zone scholarships can remove cost as an obstacle,
and GRCC offers classes in a variety of formats and schedules. A
virtual open house is a great way to find out what might work
best for you.”
This is GRCC’s first large-scale virtual open house, conducted
online because of the coronavirus crisis.
