RAPID CITY, S.D. (Oct. 12, 2012) – The South Dakota School of Mines and Technology will host Go To Mines on Saturday, Oct. 20, for high school students exploring their college options.
The event hosts high school students of all ages, particularly juniors and seniors, as well as their parents, who get to know the university’s engineering and science curriculum and research projects, as well as explore campus and the dorms. Current Mines students, faculty and staff will be available to provide insider tips about campus life, the application process, scholarships and financial aid.
A Go Women breakfast will be held as well, offering prospective female students the opportunity to interact with current students to learn about everything from dorms and dining halls to professors and job fairs. All prospective female students are invited to this breakfast and can RSVP to Jennifer Sabourin at Jennifer.Sabourin@sdsmt.edu. Students may also take a career inventory to help determine careers of interest and the majors that will move them towards their goals.
The Go To Mines event has become so popular that a second fall date has been scheduled for Nov. 10. Football tickets to the Nov.10 home game against Missouri Science and Technology will be given to those attending this Go To Mines event.
