Futurepalooza scheduled Sept. 18
Futurepalooza, an annual MSU signature event, showcases professionals and post-secondary schools highlighting career and educational opportunities for high school students. Minot State University will host Futurepalooza Sept. 18 in the Dome. Exciting presentations and informational booths will be free and open to students, parents and community members from 9:15 a.m. to noon.
"Futurepalooza could be one of the most important events students attend this year," said Kevin Harmon, assistant vice president for enrollment management. "We have experts from a wide variety of career fields and every North Dakota higher education institution in the same place, at the same time!"
Laura Entzel, coordinator, Student Loans of North Dakota, is the keynote speaker. A round table session will have 40 presenters.
"We have 40 professionals from 16 career clusters, who will sit down for three 18-minute sessions with the students," said Derek Van Dyke, admissions counselor and Futurepalooza organizer. "They will talk about their education backgrounds and the steps they took to achieve success in their professions."
Post-secondary schools from across the region will also exhibit at the event. These include 38 colleges, universities, institutes or academies from North Dakota, Minnesota, South Dakota, Manitoba, Montana, Nebraska and Wyoming. Organizers expect Futurepalooza to be even bigger than last year, with more than 600 students from 18 area schools planning to attend.
