Professors say this gives the students a chance to visit with companies about internships and future employment, without having to travel long distances. They say it also sends a clear message about the caliber of education the students are receiving.
"I guess that's kind of the 'atta boy' to the professors here. That we continue to stay current and relevant, and that we are providing our students with an education that puts them in a job placement where they are able to succeed," said Doug Hague, Pittsburg State University.
In all, companies from more than 10 states were represented at the event.
