Owens Offers Personal Tours For Potential Students

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed many of the experiences that first-time students have come to expect when planning for college. Still, Owens Community College is committed to giving potential students as full an experience as possible in a safe environment.

Owens will offer individualized tours during its annual Presidents Day Preview on Monday, February 15 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Prospective students will be given personal, guided tours and can choose the academic areas they want to see and ask any questions they may have. Admission representatives will also help fill out applications and explain the next steps that students need to take.

Each student is welcome to bring one guest with them on tour, but they must wear masks and adhere to social distancing practices.

Tours will take place on the Toledo-area campus and last approximately one hour. Participants can schedule an appointment at www.owens.edu/visit/presidentsday/.

Planetarium Presents Dome From Home Club

The Lourdes University Appold Planetarium presents the Dome From Home Club. Members will experience a new show every week right from home. Nothing can really compare with the immersive experience of traveling through space in the Appold Planetarium, but watching a version formatted for your flat screen at home is the next best thing.

“The Dome From Home Club is a new STEM education offering made available free to the public because of the COVID-19 pandemic. We want to continue to educate and encourage curiosity, despite the restrictions created by this pandemic,” explained Laura Megeath, coordinator of the Appold Planetarium.

The club is free. For more information or to sign up, visit www.lourdes.edu/outreach/appold-planetarium
