Students –from Long Prairie, Browerville, Staples-Motley, Pierz, Onamia, Isle, and Nay Ah Shing – participated in educational activities throughout the day.
- A scavenger hunt throughout the campus, which allowed the students to identify different departments throughout the college and how they would utilize each one.
