Education Department to Host First-Ever College & Career Day

The Florida Department of Education will host its first-ever College & Career Day tomorrow for middle school students from Gadsden, Leon and Wakulla Counties. These students will be learning directly from college campus recruiters about what it takes to prepare for a postsecondary education.

Representatives from Tallahassee Community College, North Florida Community College, Florida State University, Florida A&M University, the University of North Florida, and other institutions, will be on hand to share information on the enrollment and admissions process. In addition, students will have the opportunity to learn about the financial aid process and gain a better perspective of online advising tools and the challenging coursework they will experience in high school.

The event will take place:
