In partnership with Herzing University, Carthage College, Gateway Technical College and University of Wisconsin-Parkside, high school students, adult learners and parents are invited to the first-ever Kenosha Drive-Thru College Fair. The event will take place at Herzing University’s new downtown Kenosha campus on May 15.

Tents will be set up at the Herzing-Kenosha campus at 5800 Seventh Avenue, Kenosha for the college fair.
