Thank you for agreeing to be a part of Career Exploration Day on the campus of UW-Stevens Point at Wausau on Feb. 23 (inclement weather date is scheduled for March 8). We are grateful for your time and expertise and offer this guide to the day’s logistics.
Our event will be held in our main academic building (518 S. 7th Ave., Wausau, WI 54401) and in our Center for Civic Engagement building (625 Stewart Ave., Wausau, WI 54401).
A “career cluster” has been assigned to each of our larger spaces in these buildings, with a 6’ table (size may vary) provided for each employer / higher ed provider in the cluster. See the map, which will be provided in hard copy when you arrive and to all students.
We are expecting 700+ high school students. This number does not include students who are currently enrolled on our campus; they have been invited as well.
We anticipate some congestion when the buses arrive (as early as 11 a.m.). We advise that you arrive with enough time so that you can get settled in before 11 a.m.
Prior to arrival, you should consult the map of the event’s layout to know your cluster’s building location. Here, too, is a map of our building and parking lot locations. Note that S. 7th Ave. will be closed to all traffic for the day.
If you will be bringing a trailer or oversized vehicle to Career Exploration Day, please contact Janette Baumann firstname.lastname@example.org or 715-261-6221 for parking information.
If schools are closed due to severe weather conditions, participants will be notified by Lynn Lasee of the UWSP-Wausau Solution Center (uwspWausau@uwsp.edu or 715-261-6235).
We realize that creating a hands-on activity will be easier for some participants than others. In general, we hope each booth can provide something tactile or interactive. The following list is intended to spark ideas.
Specific examples of hands-on activities:
Our hope is that our Career Exploration Day will be a mutually beneficial experience and the last thing we want is to make more work for you. If these suggestions have not sparked ideas, please contact Janette Baumann email@example.com or 715-261-6221, and she will help you think of another approach. We look forward to seeing you!
