SPOKANE, Wash. – Health sciences programs at Washington State University in Spokane will host the first spring student recruitment fair for high school juniors on Friday, April 26. Registration is closed because the event is full, with 200 expected to attend.

Health sciences has teamed up with WSU’s “Preview for Juniors,” held every spring on the Pullman campus, allowing attendees to pre-register for one or both events. Prospective students and their parents will be able to visit the Spokane campus on Friday afternoon and then travel to Pullman for the Saturday event.

The Spokane visit will begin at 1 p.m. with an academic fair with staffed tables, exhibits and handouts, followed by a formal, 15-minute welcome. Participants will then select a program for a 50-minute hands-on demonstration and explanation of career choices. That will be followed by a question-answer session with a panel of students enrolled in the different health sciences programs and a tour of the campus. The event will conclude at 4:30 p.m.

Participating programs are nursing, pharmacy, medical sciences, speech and hearing sciences, and nutrition and exercise physiology.

The event was organized by Student Affairs at WSU Spokane and Student Services for Pharmacy and WSU Health Sciences.
