Lewis and Clark Community College hosted Transfer Day on Oct. 21 and had representatives visit from over 30 universities, colleges, and military branches.
Some universities in attendance were: Ashford, Butler, Dominican, Hamline, Lincoln Christian, Millikin, National University of Health Sciences, North Dakota State, Purdue, University of Illinois Springfield, and Viterbo.
The attended colleges were: Alverno, Culver-Stockton, and Illinois.Several military branches had representatives available to speak with..
Tables were set up in the Commons to showcase the universities, colleges, and military branches to all the high school students visiting from the surrounding area, as well as the Lewis and Clark students.
All tables had representatives from each school present to answer any questions students had about the school or programs they offered. Many students took advantage of this opportunity to talk with the advisors.
“I’m split between two schools right now, one of them is here so I got to speak to them about their programs,” undecided major, Kelsea Morgan said.
Transfer Day is a way for students to get answers from school recruiters, that cannot always be found on the school’s website.
Differences in cost between colleges and universities, and how far each school will take students through a program were just a few topics covered. It’s also a chance for students to explore other career choices that they wish to pursue.
