Gifted and talented high school students from throughout Iowa will gather on the campus of Iowa Wesleyan College in Mount Pleasant for a day of career exploration, information gathering about college, and interactions with college faculty and professional staff.
Young Scholars will meet with IWC professors to learn about majors in art, education, English, exercise science and wellness, music, or psychology.  Young Scholars also have the option to meet with IWC professional staff to learn about financing college, being a student-athlete, and participating actively in community service through IWC’s Service Learning and Civic Engagement program.  Students will be encouraged to ask questions of the presenters.
Students and their chaperones will enjoy a full day of events, which include a continental breakfast, a keynote address, career workshop sessions, lunch, visits with college representatives from sponsoring colleges and universities, and campus tours.
