Ivy Tech Offers Free Computer Skills Workshops

Starting college is a daunting experience for most. But heading to college after a number of years away from the classroom can be overwhelming, especially when it comes to tackling computers, math and other new or dormant skills.

In order to help new and potential students either brush up on or learn basic computer, math and writing skills, Ivy Tech Community College is offering free College Skills Workshops at its Anderson, Marion and Muncie campuses.  Three workshops will be offered at each campus on two Saturdays, September 22 and 29.  In Anderson, the workshops will be at the Ebbertt campus, 325 W. 38th St.; in Marion, main campus, 261 S. Commerce Drive; and in Muncie, Fisher campus, 345 S. High St.

All workshops will meet from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. In addition to brushing up on their skills, prospective students will have the opportunity to meet with Ivy Tech admission advisors who will help them begin the process to getting started in college. Workshops will be conducted by Ivy Tech faculty.  Enjoy refreshments, giveaways and person attention. Registration is required.
