College night at Plymouth North on October 3

On October 3, 2012, at 7 p.m., the presidents and chancellors of many of the public colleges and universities in Massachusetts will join Senate President Therese Murray for a special event at Plymouth North High School.

Prospective college applicants will learn about the programs and opportunities available at Massachusetts' public higher education institutions. Following presentations by students about their experiences at the commonwealth's community colleges, state universities and UMass campuses, there will be an open Q&A session with college leaders from several area schools.

There will also be sessions on financial aid and on career choices that make the cost of higher education a good investment.

What is this?
