2012 Social Work Fair

On Thursday, September 6th, the Social Work Department hosted the 3rd Annual Social Work Fair. Approximately 110 social work students met with representatives from 22 social service agencies in Macomb and surrounding communities, and from nine WIU campus organizations.  The students received information about available services and resources, and learned about volunteer and practicum opportunities.  The Fair was well received by students and by agency representatives. Student Rikki Johnson shared “The Social Work Fair really got me excited about Practicum! It was really nice to get to talk to the agency representatives one-on-one and ask them questions. At the Social Work Fair is actually where I decided what my first choice for Practicum would be!” Another student, Makenzie Littig shared “I thought the Social Work Fair was very useful. I got some ideas for future practicum sites. Being able to talk to the agency representatives was helpful and eased my mind a little bit.”  One agency representative stated, “I enjoyed meeting social work students one on one to provide information about our agency.”  Another agency representative stated “This has been the best student turnout since I began participating in the fall fair.”  “Students are asking excellent questions to obtain information about our agency.”
