Student Showcase 2017
Nicolet along with the 15 other technical colleges gather at State Capitol for Student Showcase
Students and staff from each of Wisconsin’s 16 technical colleges convened in the Rotunda of the Wisconsin State Capitol recently to feature a wide variety of academic programs at the annual Student Showcase.
Lawmakers, business and industry professionals, and members of the general public toured the exhibits to learn about the technical college system, the skills training the colleges provide, and how this training advances economic development in Wisconsin.
Nicolet’s display had two facets. One was the first-of its-kind partnership Nicolet formed with the Potawatomi Tribal Community to offer all classes for the college’s Professional Communications certificate in the tribal community. The other was Nicolet’s new virtual welder, which dramatically shortens training time for students. Dozens of people tried out the welder, quickly realizing the high level of skill it takes to make a professional weld.
