Fall Open House Packs the House

RALEIGH, N.C. (October 19, 2019) - Hundreds of prospective students converged on Wake Tech’s Southern Wake Campus today for the college’s Fall Open House. The event is an opportunity for local high school students and their parents, as well as professionals seeking career advancement, to explore Wake Tech programs and get a feel for campus life.
