Students from Crooms, Hagerty, Lake Brantley, Lake Howell, Lake Mary, Lyman, Oviedo, Seminole, and Winter Springs high schools took part. The event, hosted by the Admissions Office on the Sanford/Lake Mary Campus, gave students the opportunity to learn more about the programs and services offered at the College.

"Decision Day is a great way for high school seniors from across Seminole County to get a glimpse of college life," said Interim Associate Vice President of Admission and Enrollment Services Lorie Coachman. "We connect students with 200 academic and career programs, student groups and campus resources to ensure every student can find their place at Seminole State."

Students had the opportunity to tour the Raider Center, home of Seminole State Athletics, and enjoy field games and therapy dogs. Faculty and staff were on hand to answer any questions the students had about the numerous degree programs, and staff were available to walk students through the admissions process. 

New this year, students also had an opportunity to tour Seminole State’s workforce programs at the Center for Public Safety, the Barbara Miller CFADA Automotive Training Center and building D which houses the College’s construction trade programs.  

College programs including the Grindle Honors Institute, the Career Center, intramurals and the Center for Fine and Performing Arts were there to show students what life at Seminole State is like beyond the classroom. Students also had the chance to learn about the Summer Bridge program, a program created in partnership with SCPS that helps first-time-in-college students easily transition to college courses at Seminole State with no out-of-pocket expenses.
