Rock and roll, food and fun- Volunteer State Community College is offering all of that and hands-on help for students interested in registering for fall classes. "Registration Rocks" is also an opportunity for people considering college to visit the campus and explore what the school has to offer. The event will be held on Wednesday, June 8.

"We'll have admissions and advising folks available to help students," said Eric Melcher, Communications Coordinator for Vol State. "Students can find out about support programs on campus that can help them be successful in their college experience."

Subway Subs will be provided for the first 600 people and giveaway items for the first 400 people. The rock and roll will be provided by the band "Worse Case Scenario", featuring Vol State students. There will be a video game contest in the cafeteria, with prizes for the top finishers.

"June 8 is the date when fall registration is open to everyone, so we wanted to have some fun and help people get started," Melcher said. "Registration will be open all summer, so you don't have to register that day. We are encouraging students to register early to make sure they get the classes they want."

New students will need to apply to the college first. That can be done online at www.volstate.edu or in person at the Office of Admissions.

"Registration Rocks" will be held, rain or shine, on Wednesday, June 8 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the Vol State campus at 1480 Nashville Pike in Gallatin. It is free and open to the public. For more information call 615-230-3570.
