Friends Get Peek at Student Life in Jacksonville

Nov 16, 2010

The Academics and Admissions folks on the Jacksonville campus of Virginia College recently teamed up to present "Bring a Friend to School." Culinary Arts students provided light refreshments and visitors were encouraged to attend classes for a day with their student friends.

Staffers report this was a great way for prospective students to see a positive student experience firsthand. Students who brought a friend entered a drawing for a Virginia College gift basket. The winner was Culinary Arts student Debra Martinez, pictured here with Admissions Associate Brent Sheffield, Director of Admissions Melanie Parlier, and the Culinary Arts Program Director, Chef Mary Shaffeur.
