3rd Annual Rail Day & Railroad Night XII
The 3rd Annual Rail Day Expo & Railroad Night XII is next week! This event is a good opportunity to spend a casual evening and dinner with rail industry representatives, talk about career opportunities, and ask any questions about what life in the industry is like (did I mention there will be raffle prizes given away all night?!). The Rail Day Expo is good chance to see some examples of real-life railroad equipment and attend technical demonstrations to see how the equipment actually works. The activities will take place September 22nd & 23rd and are only a few days before the career fair, so you’ll have a chance to talk to most of the companies before you see them there!
Railroad Night requires a $5 admission. Tickets can be purchased around campus in the weeks leading up to the event. Ticket sales proceeds go to student raffle prizes.
Ticket Sales Locations:
Dillman – 9/15 (10-2) & 9/19 (10-2)
