MONROE, N.C. – Students take advantage of a free classes at South Piedmont Community College.
For Matthews resident Keith Logan Saturday is about learning new things. In his case the world of forensic medicine.
"I think it's going to be very interesting day I really do," he said.
Logan is like hundreds on Saturday who've come to the South Piedmont Community College's Monroe campus for an all day event called "Free College day."
Free College day is exactly what it sounds like, a one day opportunity to take college level courses for free.
"I'm taking criminal justice," said Logan. "I've always liked the C.S.I. angle of things. Seemed very interesting to me to see why a person winds up deceased, what goes on behind the scenes to you know, bring justice," he said.
The College planned Saturday as a way to allow students and others ages 13 and older to see what the college has to offer. SPCC hopes that many of the people who came out will enroll to pay for courses in the future.
Logan once took a computer class as SPCC and said it helped him. He said while he doesn't know if he will enroll in a class in the future, he likes Saturday’s event.
"This is something everyone should take advantage of," Logan said.
