Western Technical College hosted its bi-annual college-wide open house event on Wednesday, Oct. 3 at the La Crosse, Black River Falls, Independence, Mauston, Tomah and Viroqua locations.
Program and admissions information, facility tours, refreshments, and door prizes were available at each location. The residence hall in La Crosse was open for tours and wait list sign up. The college waived the $30 application fee for those who apply during the open house. The offer was available to high school seniors and older, who wish to apply to attend Western in spring, summer, and fall 2019.
At the La Crosse main campus, all activities were held in the Lunda Center. Representatives were available from student services, clubs and organizations, and four-year universities that accept Western credits. Financial aid (FAFSA) filing for the 2019-2020 school year was also available at the La Crosse main campus.
The Vehicle Technology Center which houses the Automotive Technician and Truck and Heavy Equipment Technician programs, was open for program information and facility tours as well.
