Fair Provides Students With More than 100 Post-Secondary Opportunities

The Madison Metropolitan School District will host the Wisconsin Education Fair (WEF) at James Madison Memorial High School, 201 S Gammon Rd, Madison, from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm on Monday, March 11, 2019. 

The program will provide an opportunity to obtain information from approximately 100 different post-secondary institutions. Representatives from Wisconsin and out-of-state colleges and universities, UW Centers, vocational schools, trade schools and the military will be present to talk about the many educational opportunities available.

Students are encouraged to register online before attending the fair by visiting www.gotocollegefairs.com. Madison Metropolitan high school students can request transportation at mmsd.org/WEF.

Modeled after the successful National College Fairs, this will be the best single opportunity for students and parents to pick up literature and information from the many participants and resources at one centralized location. To see a full list of participants, visit www.wefs.org/participants
