For anyone considering a college education or workforce opportunity, make sure to add the following Niagara County Community College (NCCC) events to your calendar!
On Thursday, April 20, from 6-8 p.m., you’re invited to visit the Sanborn campus, 3111 Saunders Settlement Road, and feel what it’s like to be a student. Experience our vibrant college in its entirety, including the following favorite student spaces: Learning Commons, Student Housing Village, E-Gaming Lab, Academic Center for Excellence, outdoor courtyards, STEM labs, SMART classrooms, and professional athletic facilities.
Make sure to stop by the main gym where you can view the annual Student Showcase, a campuswide event that highlights semester-long research, capstone projects, performances and art exhibitions. You’ll be able to view the type of material you’d be learning in a NCCC classroom! This year’s projects include topics on fashion, processing cannabis, animation, artificial intelligence, quantum physics, fine arts, poetry readings, and the art of pastry layering, just to name a few!
On Saturday, April 22, the Niagara Falls Culinary Institute (NFCI), 28 Old Falls St., will host an open house from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Prospective students who are interested in culinary arts, baking and pastry arts, and hospitality programs are encouraged to explore the European-influenced cooking labs; the student-run restaurant, Savor; and the pastry shop, La Patisserie; as well as speak with professional culinary educators who are teaching the next generation of leaders in the food, beverage and hospitality industry.
Unique to many open houses across the nation, NFCI will simultaneously host the American Culinary Federation’s (ACF) Monte Dolce Spring Classic Competition. The public is welcome to be a part of the excitement on the second floor where they can view innovative dishes and table display submissions by students, culinary educators and industry professionals. Parking is on the attached ramp on level three for both the NFCI open house and ACF competition.
