Eureka, Ca. (KIEM) The 36th Annual North Coast College and Career Expo underway right now at the Bayshore Mall in Eureka.
The expo helps students and parents preparing for and applying to college, trade school and other career paths.
Last year more than 1500 people attended with over 60 higher education and trade school recruiters.
They’ll be there to answer any questions about admission requirements, tuition, housing or campus life.
One Eureka High student said she attended the career expo to get an idea of which direction to go.
“I want to go to College of the Redwoods for two years and then go up to L.A. or to Louisiana in New Orleans.”
“I don’t care where they go as long as they go. I would like them to come to us and then transfer to Humboldt because of a pathway so strong,” said CR’s President Keith Flamer. “But I just want them to further their education regardless of where they are.”
“I think that’s important. It’s not about where you start it’s about where you finish. The most important thing for these students is to finish what they start,” added HSU’s President, Tom Jackson. “Whether it’s at CR or Humboldt State or one of these other institutions.”
There is also different workshops for everyone including a financial aid workshop, so you can learn how to get the funding for school.
