Spring events set

Iowa Lakes Community College and Estherville CAN are offering an Early Bird Orientation April 25, 2018 from 1:30-4 p.m. at Iowa Lakes Community College. Students will have the opportunity to meet with admissions staff for personalized information about the next steps on their path to college, whether they have questions on scholarships, class registration, housing, or even completing the application.

According to Laura Hoffman, coordinator of Estherville CAN, "If there's a senior who's still unsure about his or her plans for the fall, it's not too late to go to college."

A College Transition Panel is scheduled for May 2 from 1 p.m to 1:30 p.m. at Estherville Lincoln Central High School.

Younger students are invited to participate in career exploration opportunities.

STEM Camp takes place June 12-15. It is a full day camp open to 7th and 8th grade students held at Iowa Lakes Community College.

Career Camp is an overnight camp for 9th and 10th grade students held at Iowa Lakes Community College July 31 and August 1.

Contact LaCrecia Haywood at for more information about these two opportunities.

A health career camp for 9th through 12th graders will be held at North Iowa Area Community College in Mason City. The camp takes place from July 31-August 1 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

2018 ACT test dates

ACT is a test that helps colleges and universities understand a student's knowledge and academic skills. Scores range between 0 - 36 points. Certain schools have a required minimum score for entrance. Also colleges and universities may use the ACT score to award scholarships.

Generally, students do better on the ACT the more times they take it. Familiarity with the process and format make it easier to take after the first time.

Students should take the ACT test for the first time during their junior year of high school. With three years of high school nearly complete, they would have a solid knowledge base to do well on the test, while still allowing time to take it another time if they want to improve their score.

The ACT test scheduled for April 14 was postponed due to weather. A new date for those registered for that test will be released soon.

Additional dates are:

June 9, 2018 with a registration deadline of May 4 and late registraion May 5-18.

July 14, 2018 with a registration deadline of June 15 and late registration June 16-22.
