College Night 2011 is rescheduled to Feb. 28 due to a winter storm forecast for Feb. 9.

New Mexico Highlands University and Luna Community College will sponsor the 12th annual College Night 2011 from 5 p.m to 7:30 p.m. at the Abe Montoya Recreation Center on North Grand  in Las Vegas.    

“College Night gives high school students a chance to talk to faculty, and gather information about different disciplines and career paths,” said Gil Gonzalez, director of recruitment for Highlands University. “We also want students to know about the changes that are coming in financial aid packages so they can maximize their opportunities to help fund their higher education.”  

Highlands will have about 40 academic departments with information tables at college night. The university will also have information tables for student organizations such as the Student Ambassadors, the Student Senate, and the Native American Club.

Luna Community College will also have about 40 information tables at College Night.

Registration is not required for College night. For more information, call Highlands at 454-3593 or Luna at 454-5312.
