WSU Hosts One-Stop-Shop for College-bound

Posted: Updated:

RICHLAND, Wash. -College recruiters from throughout Washington State came to the Tri-Cities Friday, hoping to convince your kid to come to their campus.

About 400 college-bound high school students showed up at WSU Tri Cities, where they went from classroom to classroom to hear various sales pitches from 15 colleges and universities.

Jana Kay Lunstad, enrollment management coordinator at WSU, says unlike typical college fairs where representatives stand behind tables and hand out brochures, this venue gave students the chance to interact with recruiters and get specific questions answered.

"They're most interested in whether they have to live in a dorm. Are they going to be able to take theater classes or is it going to be more of a focus on liberal arts and or science," Lunstad says. "So I think it's just finding the major they want and of course affordability."

 Students from the Tri-Cities as well as Walla Walla, Adams, Grant, and Yakima counties attended College Planning Day. WSU says it will be probably host more in the future.
