​UW-Stevens Point College Planning Presentations and Workshops


Finding Your Right Fit:

This workshop allows students to think about what it means to "find the right fit" in their college search. With your Career Coach/Admissions Counselor you will dive into questions like, "what should I be looking for?" "what questions should I be asking?" or simply "what does fit mean?" Our goal is to help guide students through their post secondary search and give them the tools they need to learn about all options.
