MARTINSVILLE (WSLS 10) – Patrick Henry Community College is set to host 'Try It Out: College' from June 20 to 24. The free program is designed for potential students to explore the college experience.

Activities will include a campus tour, visits to the various classrooms and labs and hands-on teaser classes to simulate the various programs offered.

Anyone over 18 can register for the program. Each day lasts from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., with lunch provided. Participants are required to attend the entire week.

The program is an opportunity to get questions answered about financial aid and the availability of resources, such as child care and transportation.

"The hardest step is sometimes the first step. But if you want a better life, then start here," says Workforce Programs Coordinator, Brenell Thomas. "We're changing lives one at a time by putting students on a path towards a brighter future."
