Paving a path for students to keep learning
How much education it takes to be a dental hygienist or a dentist was illustrated through a bean bag toss.
Students from around northeast Wisconsin lined up to toss the bags a distance commiserate with the number of years it takes to earn those degrees.
It helped illustrate a point to Alex Yang, a junior at Green Bay Preble High School.
“Most majors… actually require more schooling than I originally thought,” he said. “That’s a good take away.”
Yang was one of about 100 students at the University of Wisconsin – Green Bay’s College Draft Day at Lambeau Field Friday.
The intent of the event is a fun way to show students educational possibilities after college. It also highlighted the educational opportunities — and help — available to first-generation and underrepresented students.
A series of interactive stations provided information ranging from class scheduling to campus housing and applying for financial aid.
