You’ll find yourself up close and personal with our state’s decision makers. But don’t let that scare you if you’re a little intimidated—feel free to say a little, or a lot. Either way, it’s going to be a great experience! The purpose of WCIE Hill Day is for students, staff and faculty from our schools to educate legislators on the importance of supporting student choice and access in all areas of higher education as well as communicating the value and role of career colleges in providing education to Wisconsin’s students. We know that our students have some great stories to tell, and now’s your chance to shine! If you’re still searching for reasons to attend, check out the list below.

1. You’ll get to learn more about our state government

Have you ever been to the state Capitol? If you have, you know that it’s a beautiful building beaming with history and grandeur. You’ll get to check out the sights and sounds of a building rich with political history. You’ll get to hear from politicians that take part in shaping our state’s public policy and decision making.
