From nwtc.edu: “NWTC Centennial” — NWTC is having a centennial party on the Green Bay campus on Saturday, Sept. 29, and you’re invited!

The College is inviting all of our community friends and neighbors–especially those who may never have been on campus. Every department in academics and student services is pulling out all the stops with demonstrations, expert advice, simulations, and mini-workshops.  The grand finale is a musical and comedy show by Frank Hermans of Let Me Be Frank Productions. You’ll even get free lunch and ice cream sundaes!
