EPIC Campus Visit Days

Senior Tech Days

November 4, 2020    9AM-2PM

February 3, 2021    9AM-2PM

Lake Area Tech hosts two Senior Tech Days. These visitation days are fun-filled, information-packed and help students decide the direction of their future.  The day starts by allowing the students to fill the shoes of a Lake Area Tech student (we promise – no exams). Students find out what it’s like to attend class by getting into some great discussions with instructors and current students, working in the labs and meeting new friends. Visitors then eat a free lunch and absorb information on the admissions process, applying for financial aid and scholarships, locating housing, and more! Parents/guardians are encouraged to attend.  Open to students in grade 12.
