Open HouseKirkland, Wash.: Did you know achieving higher paying and more rewarding career opportunities can take as little as two academic quarters? Or that students can cut overall four-year college expenses by more than 60% by enrolling in one of several specifically tailored transfer degrees? How about the fact that today two-year degree graduates are finding higher paying work faster than recent four-year degree graduates?

Learn more about changing times and the opportunities available at Lake Washington Institute of Technology (LWIT) during our annual Open House Thursday, Feb. 28, from 4 to 7 p.m.

During the event LWIT will open its cutting edge facilities to the public, giving visitors the unique opportunity to talk with instructors and students, try their hand with actual equipment used in class, see demonstrations of more technical program skills, and experience student work in gaming, culinary arts, massage, nursing, collision repair, funeral services, machining, and many more disciplines.

Additionally, visitors can attend information sessions on how to pay for college, navigating the enrollment process, and how high school students can enroll in the Lake Washington Technical Academy to receive their college education tuition-free.

Refreshments, prizes and childcare will be available. For childcare, please RSVP in advance at (425) 739-8177.
