Calhoun Community College Gears Up for First-Ever ‘Drive-Thru Decision Day’ Celebration

April 20, 2020

Calhoun Community College will host a drive-thru style event on both campuses for National Decision Day. This event will be held on Friday, May 1, 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm in front of the Math, Science and CIS Building in Huntsville and in front of the Chasteen Student Center in Decatur.

“This annual national event represents the deadline date that students confirm their admission to the college they plan to attend,” commented Dr. Patricia Wilson, Calhoun’s Vice President of Student Services. “This is also a day where many high schools across the nation encourage their students to wear their selected college apparel and celebrate their acceptance as it is one of the most important days of their lives,” added Wilson.

Students who have been accepted and declared Calhoun as their college of choice can visit either one of the drive-thru locations to pick up a free Calhoun swag bag. Each student will receive a Calhoun t-shirt and a cool sign that reads, “Headed to Calhoun” to place in their yard. “We are so excited that we will still be able to celebrate with our students in a fun and safe way on May 1st,” commented Ashley Robison, Calhoun’s Recruiting Coordinator. According to Robison, the event will also be live-streamed on Calhoun’s Facebook and Instagram page so others can join in on the celebration.
