North Iowa Area Community College (NIACC) held a “Busting Out Blue” campus visit on Saturday, March 4 for high school juniors and seniors. The day was filled with many events which included an Admissions presentation with information on programs available at
NIACC, Financial Aid, and Scholarships; a tour of campus and student housing; and free admission to the Men’s and Women’s basketball games. Several of the future Trojan athletes (2017-18 newly signed athletes) were recognized and high school dance teams performed together with the NIACC Dancers during the half time of the Men’s game. The day concluded with mentalist Chris Carter performing in the Auditorium.
