The Rose State College Diversity Center will host an outdoor job fair and cultural celebration for the whole family Saturday, March 25.
The event will be from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. and will host representatives from the Oklahoma City Fire Department, multiple branches of the military and 28 colleges, tech centers and universities, such as the University of Oklahoma, the University of North Texas and Emporia State University.
The Celebration of Cultures event will be from 8 a.m.-6 p.m., March 25. As part of the celebration, the Diversity Center is organizing a host of competitions, and cash prizes are available. There will be a poetry contest, vocabulary bee, a musical competition, an art fair, a folk song competition and more.
For Spanish-speaking students, there will also be a Spanish competition.
Various student-run clubs, such as Spectrum Alliance and Black Student Association, will also be in attendance.
“The goal is to bring as many students from all over the state to our campus,” said Donnie Anderson, event coordinator. “The Diversity Center is hosting a couple of competitions with monetary awards, but we just want to show as many students as possible how great Rose State is. We want to show all the options for different colleges and tech centers after they graduate from Rose.”
While it is certainly not the first time Rose State has held a job fair, it is the first time partnering with the Diversity Center.
Come prepared with some snack money as there also will be a handful of food trucks at the event, Black Lives Matter artists and various pop-up shops with local vendors.
