NMSU-A’s First Annual Discovery Fair
On Friday, June 20, at the Willie Estrada Civic Center, NMSU-A hosted the first annual Discovery Fair, a new community event that opened the doors to NMSU-A for adults and children from Alamogordo, Otero County and beyond, engaging them in free, quality hands-on experiences. The NMSU-A Discovery Fair also offered information about NMSU-A’s upcoming classes and academic programs. The Open House provided information on the college’s degree and certificate programs, and provided special workshops on admission and financial aid. Also available was information about the Pro-Active Advising program, a platform that includes additional support and a specialized orientation for those students who are attending college for the first time, plan to attend full-time, and who would like to graduate in two years.
Attendees had the opportunity to meet with faculty, staff, and current students and learn about academic support services, programs and career services, transfer opportunities, and paying for college. There were many interactive experiences and activities, including tire checks from NMSU-A Automotive Program, fingerprinting by the Alamogordo Department of Public Safety and so much more.
