For the City Times
Mid-State Technical College will host a Wisconsin Education Fair (WEF) for area high school students, parents and other prospective adult students from 9–11 a.m. on Wednesday, October 5. The event will be held in the Wisconsin Rapids Campus gymnasium (E Building, 500 32nd Street North).
Over 70 representatives from universities, colleges, technical and vocational colleges, trade schools and the military will be in attendance. Attendees will be free to move around the gymnasium to review higher education options and spend time with individual representatives from the institutions of their interest. Financial aid personnel will also be available to discuss student financial assistance.
This is an excellent opportunity for high school students and parents, as well as individuals seeking to enhance their careers, to obtain academic program and campus information from a variety of institutions in a short period of time. While many area high school students will have the opportunity to attend with their school, individual participation is also encouraged. The fair is open to the public and free to attend.
Participants can register in advance at http://gotocollegefairs.com. Early registrants will receive a barcode that can be scanned at the table of any institution of interest in lieu of filling out interest cards.
