Area & Virtual College, Career and Enrichment Events

  • Many events are virtual; be sure you read the details carefully. Nearly all virtual events require preregistration. Some organizations will offer recordings of sessions if you cannot tune in. 

    We list some events put on by individual colleges that typically draw our students' interest, but this list is far from comprehensive. Check the websites of the colleges that interest you for their events.
