Students reportedly had plenty of inquiries, ranging from costs associated with getting a degree to how to apply and what majors are available to them. Representatives from approximately 10 community colleges, technical colleges and small universities were available to answer questions at the event, which was coordinated by Highview instructors Dawn Kalina and Linda Valentine.
