Collin College will host a community open house event at its new Farmersville Campus from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, May 22.

The event is free and the pub­lic is encouraged to attend.

The open house will include opportunities to explore the cam­pus, learn about programs being offered and to register for summer or fall courses. Refreshments and promotional items will be avail­able while supplies last.

Executive Dean Diana Hopes has been at the campus for sev­eral months and has become in­volved in the community.

“We are so excited about our upcoming family-friendly open house and eager to meet the res­idents of eastern Collin County,” Hopes said. “Guests can tour the beautiful, full-service campus and learn about the various pro­grams, courses, and upcoming events.”

Since opening in mid-March, the campus has hosted a city event for a Sister City signing ceremony and a Farmersville Ro­tary Club meeting.

The facility can serve up to 1,250 students when fully uti­lized, with seven classrooms, three computer labs, two science labs and a dedicated health sci­ences workforce lab. Student-fo­cused amenities include a career center, a library, a testing center, student services and tutoring at the Anthony Peterson Center for Academic Assistance.

The campus offers educational opportunities for traditional, dual credit and continuing education learners.

Classes will include general education, Business Manage­ment, Computer/IT, Logistics, Activity Care Professional, Med­ical Assisting Advanced Practice and Continuing Education class­es.

The Farmersville Campus is located at 501 S. Collin Parkway in Farmersville. Vis­it www.collin.edu/campuses/ farmersville for more informa­tion about the campus.
