The Minnesota School of Business-Lakeville (MSB) recently hosted a health preview day for over 72 high school students from Rosemount High School and Faribault Area Learning Center to explore programs such as massage therapy, veterinary technology and medical assistant. The students attended breakout sessions to learn about each of these programs as well as their social media presence and a presentation about getting an education that you are passionate about.
The students attended five different sessions and enjoyed multiple games such as x-ray bingo hosted by MSB-Lakeville’s Veterinary Technology Program Chair Nicole Nieman. Another session hosted by Stephanie Strand, the massage therapy program chair, had ten stations setup where students could practice massage modalities and Amy Thue from the medical assistant program showed students how to do vaccinations on oranges.
Admissions representative Katie Hanevold discussed getting an education that you are passionate about while Director of Career Services Amber Conrade helped students asses their social media presence.
The students had a great time and got to see what an education from Minnesota School of Business would be like. Doug Anderson, a medical/health instructor from the high school said, “We have been doing these preview days [for many years] and continue to do them to this day. It is a great way for students to see what types of different colleges are available as well as different programs.”
