Minnesota West students connect with local businesses
WORTHINGTON — Students at Minnesota West Community and Technical College began their fall semester Monday. The school offered a “Get Connected” day to help students become acclimated, with opportunities available on campus and in the community. Approximately 30 vendors were on hand to meet with the student body.
“It was just a nice way to bring the community on campus,” said Amber Luinenberg, marketing coordinator.
Local businesses offered information on job opportunities and what their businesses have to offer. For students who aren’t familiar with Worthington or the surrounding area, the event is very helpful.
In addition to members of the community visiting with students, many student organizations on campus offered information and recruited new members. Further, the campus had work study opportunities available for students to take advantage of. Minnesota West also provided a free lunch for all of the students and musical entertainment by Andrew Walesch.
“It’s a nice way for students who aren’t from the area to learn what’s (available),” Luinenberg shared.
