Lake Region State College held a fair today to help students transition into a new phase of life.

The community fair gives students the chance to visit with dozens of local businesses and service groups helping with everything from where to buy winter clothes to where to open a checking account. Organizer Erin Wood says the fair puts everything in one place that would take students much longer to find on their own.

Wood: “We have a wide variety of people that come to the fair. We have people that return each year. We have some new ones each year. We have the financial institutions. Different service organizations looking for some volunteers.”

Wood says around 40 different entities helped out.
