College to Community Day is the theme being promoted in Great Bend for the past few years between Barton Community College officials and the City of Great Bend. Annually, approximately 200 college students will meet with local business leaders, tour facilities, and, most importantly, learn about job opportunities in our community.
College officials as well as City Council members and City Staff accompany each group. Some of the businesses have expressed interest in offering internships and job shadowing possibilities after the event is completed.
The day concludes at Walnut Bowl with a catered meal and complimentary bowling and miniature golf for the participants. Door prizes unique to college students are also given away.
