VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - College students got a dose of the real world Wednesday morning.
That's with the Great Start Boot Camp, hosted by Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College.
It's a conference that prepares freshmen and sophomores for the workforce.
Sessions covered several topics such as dressing for success and how to control your look when communicating nonverbally.
"One of the things that we got feedback on a lot last year is that they wanted more information about finances," said Learning Resource Center Director Christy Gunderson, "So we have a session that's specifically for budgeting to help them alleviate some of those questions they have about money and the finance issues."
This is the second year for the event. It's also part of a grant through the Indiana Commission for Higher Education.
