Pearl River Community College will be welcoming all prospective students to the annual Wildcat Experience on the Poplarville campus Tuesday, April 12. 

High school juniors and seniors as well as any non-traditional student interested in PRCC are invited to get first-hand experience of life at The River. The free event will be from 1 – 3 p.m. on The Green of the Centennial Courtyard on the Poplarville Campus. 

Faculty, staff and current students will be available to cover everything from the enrollment process to what your college experience could look like as a PRCC Wildcat. 

“The Wildcat Experience is an awesome day for prospective students to meet faculty, staff, administration and current students here at The River and learn more about what it means to be a part of the Wildcat Family,” said Coordinator of Recruitment & Marketing Kari Eve Valence. “The Office of Recruitment is excited to host this annual event where the ‘Wildcat Way’ will be on full display.”
