Riverland Hosts Fall Career Exploration Days and Informational Open Houses

Release Date: September 30, 2019

Categories: Riverland News Area Media Stories Media Release

Riverland Community College will host four separate career cluster focused events based at the campus where the programs are located. Our goal in this event  is to provide a focused, worthwhile career exploration experience involving hands-on activities and demonstrations – as well as more time for prospects to connect with faculty, Riverland students, and business and industry partners.

The afternoon session is for High School students only from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. Interested students may come and explore the different career areas. High Schools are welcome to bring students in grades 10-12 who have an interest in learning about the programs showcased at each of the four campus locations.

The evening session is open to the public from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m.. An opportunity for non-traditional students, parents, and invested community members can come and learn about the programs we offer at Riverland.
