Advice Offered on Getting Through College

The University of Wisconsin-River Falls will offer a free lecture hosted by emeritus professor and dean Neal Prochnow on March 28 from 2-4 p.m. in the President's Room of the Hagestad Student Center.

The presentation, "Get Out of College and Get On With Your Career On Schedule: Insider Tips from a Dean," will provide insight into making wise decisions that will enable students to complete their degree in a cost-effective manner.

"A college degree can still provide students with the ability to be financially independent," Prochnow said. "However, as the cost of college continues to rise, it will take longer to see the return on a college investment." He also notes the competition for good jobs is keen, and the choice of going to college and choosing a career can no longer be a random process.

This event is one of the Sunday Lecture Series sponsored by the UW-RF College of Arts and Sciences and the Office of Outreach and Graduate Studies. The lecture is free and open to the public and refreshments will be served following the presentation.

For more information, contact Outreach and Graduate Studies at 715/425-3256 or 800-228-5607.
