Positive energy reverberated around the College as more than 210 prospective students and their families filled the William R. DeCota hangar for Vaughn College’s spring open house. The attendees heard about Vaughn’s futureproof degree programs in engineering, technology, management and aviation, toured the campus and learned what living and learning at Vaughn would be like. 

Vaughn College Assistant Vice President of Admissions Nick Marter kicked off the day with welcome remarks followed by Vaughn’s President Dr. Sharon B. DeVivo and Director of Career Services Chaundra Daniels. DeVivo introduced the attendees to the vision of the College—and noted the nationwide No. 1 in upward mobility ranking Vaughn received which supports that vision. Attendees heard about the Vaughn guarantee and the support afforded them by the academic services, career services and student affairs departments to help them succeed on their college journey and land their dream job.  

“Vaughn is so confident in the value of the education we provide that if an eligible student is not employed full-time in their field of study, or continuing their education one year after graduating, the College will reimburse up to one year of federal, direct undergraduate student loan payments,” said DeVivo. She was happy to note that “due to Vaughn’s very high employment placement rate – 98% of students employed or continuing their studies one year post graduation – we have not had to reimburse anyone yet.” More information about the Vaughn College Guarantee is available here: www.vaughn.edu/vaughns-guarantee 

In addition to the academic sessions, attendees were given a presentation on college affordability, scholarships and financial aid options that are available to help finance their college education and staff was on hand to help interested attendees fill out the new Free Application for Federal Student Aid or FAFSA.
