Here are some highlights:
Finger Lakes Community College faculty and staff will give tours and overviews of technology degree programs, including engineering science and a new degree, instrumentation and control technologies.
Ontario County Sheriff’s Office will offer parents Safe Cards featuring their children’s photos, fingerprints and identifying information.
Rochester Museum & Science Center will have information and registration forms for its summer camps at the FLCC Victor Campus Center. The camps for children ages 6 to 11 will include field trips to the museum.
Governments and organizations, including the Rotary Club, Victor Parks and Recreation, Victor Hiking Trails and the Victor village and town offices, will have exhibits of community resources.
The FLCC Victor Campus Center opened in January 2010 and offers traditional transfer degree courses as well as many of the college’s technology degree programs. Day classes are available for traditional students, and evening offerings cater to people with busy work and family schedules.
FLCC evening classes currently under way include American Sign Language, Office Management, Introduction to Nutrition and Computer Programming as well as courses leading to a two-year paralegal degree. FLCC expects state approval soon for a new one-year paralegal certificate. This new program will allow people who already have a college degree to take only those courses necessary to begin working in the paralegal field.
Programming scheduled for summer 2011 includes evening classes in Basic Accounting, Statistics and Introduction to Programming and Computing.
