(Bluefield)—More than one-half of all jobs in West Virginia will require some form of education and training after high school, but only 26% of West Virginians have earned a two-year or four-year college degree. Additionally, college graduates are much less likely to be unemployed, even when the economy is in a downturn. This points to one simple fact—the more you learn, the more you'll earn. That's why Bluefield State College is participating in the 2012 West Virginia College Application and Exploration Week, October 1-5.

Bluefield State College will host free-of-charge workshops designed to help adult learners explore and apply for college programs throughout West Virginia. These workshops will take place daily during the 2012 West Virginia College Application and Exploration Week, October 1-5, 2012 in Conley Hall—rooms 303 & 316, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. each day.

College Application and Exploration Week is an opportunity for adults to learn more about their options for education and training beyond high school. During the workshops, attendees can explore certificate programs, two-year degree programs, and four-year degree programs. Interested individuals are encouraged to attend and explore college programs throughout West Virginia. For additional information contact Dr. Sarita Rhonemus by phone (304-327-4096) or e-mail (sgattuso@bluefieldstate.edu).
