If you like cars and bikes, if you like the opportunity to take free classes, if you like a campus-wide day of fun and exploration, come to Washtenaw Community College Sunday, Sept. 25.

The college is combining events this fall to officially close out its year-long 50th anniversary celebration.

For the 13th year in a row, the popular Cars & Bikes on Campus event will take place from 11:00am to 3:00pm in Parking Lots 2 and 3 near the Occupational Education Building.

For the third year, WCC will open its classroom doors for another “Free College Day,” featuring college instructors holding classes in a variety of disciplines. Visit wccnet.edu/openhouse for a list of available classes.

Rounding out the day will be the closing of a time capsule that will be sealed for another 25 years.

The Community Open House event begins at 11:00 a.m. with check in at the college’s Community Park. Visitors can participate in a campus-wide scavenger hunt. What better way to explore campus? Treasure hunters completing the “hunt” will be entered to win one of two GoPro Hero video cameras.

For those interested in exploring the campus, visitors can tour state-of-the-art labs, learn fun facts about the college, and discover other points of interest.

Throughout the event in Community Park, there’ll be cider and donuts, carnival food and a mini Frisbee Golf Course. The Entrepreneur Showcase gives guests an opportunity to support WCC’s campus entrepreneurs as they feature their wares. Walk or take a short ride to The Health & Fitness Center to tour this award-winning facility.

Visitors also are welcome to attend the Time Capsule Ceremony at the entrance to the Morris Lawrence Building. There, items from this time period will be sealed in the metal capsule to be opened 25 years from now. All are then invited to enjoy a piece of 50th anniversary cake in the Morris Lawrence Building to officially close the college’s 50th anniversary celebration.
