VANCOUVER, Wash. — Washington State University Vancouver, in partnership with the WSU Distance Degree Programs and student government and the American Association of University Women, is sponsoring “College Knowledge for Adults,” a free satellite conference Thursday, Feb. 6, from 6-9 p.m. in Classroom Building, Room 130.
The conference features a videotaped message from Mona Locke, wife of Washington Governor Gary Locke, and aims to answer the questions that many adults considering college have: Can I do it? Can I afford it? What are my options? What are my career options when I complete my education?
Participants will also learn more about the educational options at WSU Vancouver, including degree programs and financial aid. A live panel will be available after the broadcast to share personal experiences and answer questions about admissions, careers and financial aid. Washington Mutual has committed a total of eight $250 scholarships. Winners will be drawn at random and each participant will have an opportunity to win. Winners will be able to use the scholarships at community colleges or four-year schools in Washington.
