Bunker Hill’s Informal Session

On Wednesday March 30th, an information center was held by Bunker Hill Community College at the Malden Teen Enrichment Center. The Life Map Center and Student Advising of the college typically holds advising and orientation sessions throughout the year. These sessions are in collaboration with the Department advising sessions during the fall and spring semesters.

The Department of Bunker Hill has two primary purposes; to provide knowledge, training and skill development for persons interested in working in the area of social services with specific educational opportunities and also to serve the community as an information and knowledge-base in the area of social services.

The Department also has four goals within their program of study which are to provide sufficient student competence, to prepare graduates for upper-division collegiate work, to upgrade the skills and knowledge-base of persons currently working with the field of social services, and to participate in community activities in social services.

Bunker Hill Informal Sessions are also held on campus, where people spend time exploring the campus with an admissions counselor. These sessions provide material on Administrations, Registration, Financial Aid, Academics and other opportunities that are available for potential students. They also go over the application requirements, deadlines and the process of transferring into the college.

The session also promotes an opportunity for Malden High School students to take college classes while still in high school. The Dual Enrollment Program enables high school students to earn high school and college credits at the same time. The staff provided students advice on Accuplacer testing, which is required in order to be enrolled in the program.

They explained how the program provides both academic and non-academic support for students to make sure that they are completing their classes and successfully performing in them. Students take courses that they would be unable to take in high school and they obtain college credit from them.

Informal Sessions from Bunker Hill are held throughout the year and future sessions can be found on the college’s website.
