QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Many students across the Tri-states are getting ready to head to college for the fall. That's no different at John Wood Community College, where they held orientation on Thursday night.

John Wood expects around 450 incoming freshmen, and some of them were able to get a feel for college life.

Students took part in orientation at the Quincy campus. They were able to ask any sort of last minute questions they had, and get a chance to see where their classes will be.

Incoming freshman Cole Thompson said he's planning on studying architecture at a four-year university, but he's going to John Wood first, in order to knock out some of his prerequisites.

"It's local, but not only that, it's a lot of opportunities through John Wood, all of your classes transfer, and I received a leadership scholarship so that was a big part of my decision." Thompson said.

Classes begin on Monday, August 21.
