GRAND FORKS — Northland Community & Technical College will host career expos at the college’s locations in Thief River Falls and East Grand Forks.

The first expo is set to be held on Wednesday, March 30, at the Thief River Falls campus. Doors will open at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday. The second event will be held on April 20 at the East Grand Forks campus. The events will give high school students in grades 9-12 an opportunity to meet with faculty in a wide variety of programs as well as student services staff.

“We are excited to get high school students back on campus to learn more about our awesome programs at Northland,” said Maura Efteland, recruiter and advisor at Northland. “Each program will have hands-on activities that will allow students to gain a real understanding of the field.”

Northland’s annual Career Expo offers area high school students the opportunity to explore careers that are in demand regionally to help make decisions about their future. The event focuses on Northland’s programs and provides an in-depth experience connecting participants directly with faculty.

Attendees come from school districts surrounding the campuses. In Thief River Falls districts include the Minnesota towns of Goodridge and Newfolden. In East Grand Forks local students will attend, as well as students from Thompson, North Dakota, and Crookston, in Minnesota. Home-schooled students are also welcome to attend.


Many Northland programs will be on hand, including paramedic, nursing, occupational therapy assistant, as well as several others. Students can attend several different sessions to get more information about programs, as well as ask questions about registration and other college-related matters.

More information can be found on Northland’s website, or by calling the college’s admission office.
