LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - Some area grade school students spent the Friday in College.
240 students from 21 different school districts took part in "Kids' College" at UW-La Crosse.
They had a chance to pick from a number of classes they might be interested in.
Students were taught by college students and professors and even our own New8's Jennifer Livingston and photojournalist Rob Born.
The event was not only a day off for the kids from their regular coursework, but a chance for the students to think about their future.
"We just want them to think about higher education, maybe someday they will want to go to college and join in on these activities after high school and of course we would love to have them here at UW-L," said UW-L's Youth Program Coord. Karen Deschepper.
This is the 15th year UW-L has hosted "Kids' College."
