Rasmussen College hosts Mind, Body, Spirit event for middle school students
WAUSAU (WAOW) -- Rasmussen College partnered with Marathon Venture Academy for the first Mind, Body and Spirit event.
Middle schoolers from Marathon Venture Academy in Wausau went to college on Friday. The children rotated through seminars, labs and demonstrations.
Students learned about health and college education options and even took part in labs.
Rasmussen officials hope this event gets children thinking about their future.
"These kids are going to learn something from somewhere," explained Patrick Schmidt, the Rasmussen College director of admissions. "What a better way to teach them and prepare them for some of the difficult decisions they're going to have down the road."
Rasmussen College directors say they hope this will become a yearly event.
