College can seem complex and even scary for adult students. People who are considering college or who may have college credits and want to finish their degree, are invited to Volunteer State Community College Reconnect Information Sessions. The Reconnect events will feature one-on-one advising. Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions and get answers in an informal and relaxed setting.

“We want to take the mystery out of attending college and walk people through what they need to do, step-by-step,” said Ken Hanson, director of Adult Learners and Veterans Affairs. “We invite the entire family to come along. We’ll have refreshments available.”

Vol State Reconnect is part of a statewide effort to get more adult students into college. The events are coming up on July 7 on the Livingston campus; July 18 on the Highland Crest campus in Springfield; and July 21 at the Cookeville Higher Education Campus. There will be two sessions on the Gallatin campus, one on July 28 and another on Aug. 2. All of the events will be held from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. People are encouraged to email for more details and to let the college know they are coming. Participants can also call 615-230-3447. Vol State has web pages specifically for adult students, including a blog with a unique perspective on what it’s like to be an adult student, at
