Students offered financial tips at Wisconsin Education Fair
WAUSAU (WAOW) -
Hundreds of high school students gathered at University of Wisconsin Marathon County, to learn how to pay for a college degree.
It's part of the annual Wisconsin Education Fair. More than 100 college representatives were at the Fieldhouse at UWMC Wednesday night.
Organizers say the event provides future college students the opportunity to get information on colleges in the area. Financial advisers were also there to offer financial tips.
"We have a financial aid table that's available for students to pick up any literature and information to help them off set the cost of college," said UWMC high school relations specialist, Brian Kalish.
"I'm really looking at the scholarship bulletins and seeing what they have to offer, there's a lot of scholarships out there even with your parent's businesses and random ones too," said Wausau West high school senior, Meghan Peters.
