The Wisconsin Education Fair, featuring representatives from approximately 90 post-secondary institutions, will be in Rice Lake on Monday, Oct. 7. The education fair will be held from 9:00 – 11:00 a.m. in the UW-Barron County gymnasium.
This program, which is open to the public free of charge, will provide an opportunity for parents and students to obtain information from approximately 90 post-secondary institutions. Representatives from Wisconsin and out-of-state colleges and universities, vocational schools, trade schools, and the military will be present to talk about the many educational opportunities.
No formal sessions will be held; rather, the students and parents will be free to move from display table to display table around the gym, spending as much time as they wish with the individual representatives.
According to UW-BC/WITC event coordinators Kevin Falkenberg and Christy Roshell, “This will be the single best opportunity for students and parents to pick up literature and information from the many fair participants at one central location.”
Modeled after the successful national college fairs that are held annually in many metropolitan areas, this program replaces many of the college nights that were formerly held at local high schools.
For more information contact Kevin Falkenberg, UW-BC student advisor, at 715.234.8176 ext. 1 or Christy Roshell, WITC Career Specialist, at 715.234.7082. Local high school guidance counselors will also have specific details regarding this event. The Wisconsin Education Fair is co-sponsored by UW-Barron County and the Wisconsin Indianhead Technical College.
