Buccaneer Day and Non-Traditional Student Open House

The Dawson Community College Enrollment Management Department will host two events in October for prospective students. Buccaneer Day will be held on Monday, October 29 from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., and on Tuesday, October 30, a Non-Traditional Student Open House will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. in DCC’s Jane Carey Memorial Library.

All high school seniors, juniors, and parents of prospective students are invited to experience a day in the life of a DCC student on Buccaneer Day. All visiting students will have the opportunity to learn about academic programs and student services; meet instructors, coaches, and current students; connect with future students; take part in a hands-on academic experience; have lunch in the Student Center; and receive a full tour of the DCC campus. Additionally, Buccaneer Day attendees are entered to win a $250 scholarship.

“We look forward to meeting future Buccaneers and introducing them to life at Dawson Community College in Glendive,” said Suela Cela, Director of Enrollment Management. “I want to invite anyone who is interested to come be a Buccaneer for a day.”

Buccaneer Day is a free event, however, anyone interested must register prior to attending. Students can register for Buccaneer Day by clicking here. 

The Non-Traditional Student Open House is also a free event and is open to anyone who identifies as a prospective non-traditional student. Non-traditional students may be individuals who work full-time, plan on attending school-part time, have dependents other than a spouse, are over the age of 25, or are financially independent for financial aid reasons. DCC staff will be available at the Non-Traditional Student Open House to provide information and answer questions about enrollment, programs, financial aid, and student services.

“We value our non-traditional students and want to ensure they feel connected to our staff and campus and have all the information and assistance necessary to succeed,” Cela said.
