A Minnesota Education Fair for all high school students and their parents will be held at the Riverland Community College on Wednesday, Oct. 3, 2018 from 12:30 - 2 p.m. The College Fair will be held in the Riverland Gymnasium, located on the Austin Campus, East Building (follow the signs). Parking is available on the west side - near the gym entrance.

This fair provides students and parents an opportunity to explore a variety of options for continued education and technical training after high school.  Representatives from nearly 100 educational institutions and other organizations will be available to answer questions and provide important information for post-high school planning.  Structured like a trade show, students and parents will be free to look at various displays and speak to those schools, colleges, and organizations that interest them.
