Lake Land College to host Illinois College Exposition and Career Day

More than 1,500 junior and senior high school students will have the opportunity to meet with more than 35 college representatives this year at the annual Lake Land College Illinois College Exposition and Career Day, held Oct. 1 from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Field House.

This year’s Career Day is once again an Illinois College Exposition (ICE Fair), which means university representatives, as well as career and military representatives, will be in attendance to share information on opportunities in higher education and the armed forces. 

"College and career decisions are challenging, but life-changing choices,” said Lisa Shumard-Shelton, director of new student admissions at Lake Land. “The ICE Fair and Career Day provide students with vital information that will help them in the decision-making process." 

Additionally, faculty and staff from Lake Land College will be in attendance to offer direction to students interested in the various educational opportunities Lake Land College offers. Participants can attend sessions taught by Lake Land faculty where they will answer questions about their respective fields of study. Participants will have a chance to ask questions about the education needed for a particular career and the work itself.

“Our faculty have many connections within their disciplines and can often offer additional information and contacts so students can gain the necessary information to help guide them on a career path,” said Tina Moore, director of career services.

Shumard-Shelton said the event, which is now more than 30 years old, is designed to educate students in a fun way. 

"It’s a fun-filled day full of opportunities for students interested in a variety of options. Students can find out what they want to know about educational and career options," she said.

Shelton encouraged students interested in Career Day to talk to their guidance counselor about attending the event.  The ICE Fair portion of the event is free and open to community members to visit during 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Field House.
