Area campus draws crowd for Summer Sizzler

Posted:
MARSHFIELD (WAOW) -

School may be out, but UW-Marshfield/Wood County is buzzing with students and parents.

It's an open house at the campus that organizers call the Summer Sizzler.

The UW-Marshfield/Wood County open house started this afternoon and continues into the evening.

The campus event is designed for high school students, their parents and people who want to go back to college to learn about UW-Marshfield/Wood County.

Organizers say staff members are available to answer questions about degree options, financial aid, and more.

Students say they're excited for the opportunity to visit the campus.

"I decided to come here because there's affordable tuition, small class sizes, and it's close to home," said incoming freshman, Mikayla Jankowski.

"It's a nice opportunity for anybody, so from children all the way on up to see what college is about, what facilities we have to rent, our fitness center, continuing education to just learn about what we have in this community," said Brittany Lueth, the UW-Marshfield/Wood County Interim Assistant Dean of Student Affairs.

The Summer Sizzler ran until 7 p.m.
