Information Fair Helps New Students Get Established in Monterey
August 26, 2011
Local businesses and student service providers offering everything from food and transport to banking and recreational opportunities introduced themselves to new and returning students at the Monterey Institute’s second annual Student Information Fair on Wednesday, August 24. The event drew a steady crowd of new and returning students and was a great success, connecting students, many of them new to the Monterey Peninsula, to service providers in the local community.
“This year’s Info Fair was a great success. We had a good variety of local businesses and organizations represented, as well as on-campus offices and student groups. It’s a wonderful way for students to engage in the community and see the many services and opportunities that are available to them,” said Student Services Associate Megan Joyce. With a busy season of study ahead of them, students can certainly use opportunities to save time working out the practical side of life as a graduate student.
