Students in the Lake Land College TRiO Talent Search program recently traveled to Branson, Mo.
During the trip, students took part in a tour of the College of the Ozarks and learned about the Ozark area. Students were able to view a showing of the “Branson Legacy or Legend,” an hour-long IMAX movie that informed the students on the history and culture of the Ozark area.
At the College of the Ozarks, students received a guided tour of the campus that included classroom buildings, dorm rooms and the chapel, while they listened to presentations on different aspects of the college. Additionally, they were able to take a more detailed self-guided tour, which allowed them to see the campus in greater detail. Also, they were able to experience eating in the college dining hall for both breakfast and lunch.
Those attending learned about a program that the College of the Ozarks has that allows students to attend the school at no cost if they are involved in a work program offered through the college. They were also provided with information on various scholarships as well as the admission process for the college.
Following the tour, ETS students visited the museum on campus to learn more about Ozark history and culture.
"I liked the tour of campus because it was educational and I liked hearing about the college from a few of the students attending,” said Devin Friesland, Ramsey.
