Special Events

We offer a wide variety of special events to give prospective students and families an opportunity to learn more about preparing for, and becoming, a student at ECC.


2017 Franklin County Regional College Fair

Each year ECC hosts a college fair for our current and prospective students. This year the fair will be on Monday, September 18th, 2017 from 9:00-11:00am. Many in- and out-of-state four year universities, technical schools, and military representatives, will be on campus to speak with current ECC and high school students about educational opportunities at their respective institutions.
