As our only community college, Imperial Valley College provides a lot to the community. Two good examples of that service occurred in October as the college had its annual college and university day and its career fair.
Both programs are extremely important to the people of the Imperial Valley in that both each year open doors to new possibilities. Living in the Valley it is possible for young people to not realize all the career possibilities available. It is easy for people to have the misconception there are few opportunities and thus they may not see a need to seek a higher education or advanced training.
The college and university day provides a clear example of what is out there for youths and anyone else if they are willing to work hard. Students from all over the Imperial Valley have a chance to attend college and university day to learn about what opportunities there are for higher education.
