Dr. Faith C. Hensrud, president of Northwest Technical College and Bemidji State University, and Darrin Strosahl, vice president of academic affairs, talked with students about the growing number of opportunities that will be available for NTC graduates and congratulated them on choosing NTC as the next step on their career path.

Students attended break-out sessions that allowed them discuss online tools, financial aid and records, student success and resources. They were also able to explore the various clubs and organizations that NTC has to offer, including Student Senate, Child Care Club, Student Nurses’ Association, Electrical Club and more.
