Events at Ridgewater Campuses This Week 25 Mar 14

Students and staff have moved into the new Student Services building at Ridgewater College in Willmar and there are events taking place this week that provide a good opportunity for the public to see the new building.

KWLM reports the new Student Services Building is part of a 13.5 million dollar renovation and expansion on the Willmar Campus.

Ridgewater President Doug Allen says the Ridgewater Health Fair is today (Tuesday) in Hutchinson and Wednesday in Willmar, and the Discover Ridgewater event is Wednesday in Hutchinson and Thursday in Willmar. Allen says Discover Ridgewater is a chance to come in, visit with instructors and students, and learn more about financial aid and the admissions process. Campus and department tours will be offered and the day will end with free entertainment and lunch.

Allen says people can discover the latest health trends and learn more about tried-and-true healthy choices by attending this year’s Annual Ridgewater College Community Health Fairs set for today (Tuesday) in Hutchinson and Wednesday in Willmar. They run 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., and are targeted at regional community members, students and staff who are interested in learning more about health and potential healthcare careers.
