Maybe there's a high school senior in your home, or maybe you've been thinking about continuing your education or making a career change. Southwest Tech in Fennimore, Wisconsin is hosting an in-person open house event next Wednesday, October 13th.

This morning we chatted with Kaye Woodke, Assistant Recruiter for Southwest Tech, who gave us all the details.

Southwest Tech features over 60 programs, which Kaye says gives them "something for everyone." The school specializes in two-year technical diplomas and Associate degrees but also features certificates and one-year programs as well.

There's a lot to offer, including programs in health and industrial careers, like welding, building trades, automotive tech, and automotive collision... just to name a few.

The open house event will be from 3 to 7 pm and you'll be able to learn about these programs and more.

As for students, Southwest Tech features approximately one thousand to thirteen hundred full-time on-campus students, while serving over five thousand students in the five-county area with their online programming.

During the open house, you'll have a chance to visit the school labs and classrooms, meet instructors and students, and have a chance to win some free giveaways! You'll also have access to folks from their financial aid department who can fill you in as to how to afford your education there.

If you'd like to attend, you can preregister at the Southwest Tech WEBSITE. Sessions will last approximately 90 minutes.

If you can't make it out, you can still visit the website and stop by the visit page to set up a trip over another time.
