Roane State Community College is having two virtual information sessions this week that are focused on addressing questions from students and their parents during the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The first session, for current and prospective students, was from 6 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 26.
The second session, for parents and caregivers, is from 6 to 7 p.m. Thursday, May 28.
The May 26 session was geared toward current and prospective students as they prepare for classes or are considering enrollment for summer or fall, a press release said.
The May 28 session will focus on answering questions that parents or other caregivers may have about the college’s plans for a continued response to the pandemic.
Led by Roane State President Chris Whaley, panelists from financial aid, student services, public safety, admissions, and other divisions will be present to address concerns or general questions. Questions are being collected beforehand and can be submitted via email to [email protected]. Emailed and live questions will be answered during each session.
