Roanoke Highlights Higher Education Opportunities

Posted: Updated:

The Roanoke Higher Education center is creating a Pathway to Education.

All of the member institutions of the Higher Education Center packed into the Roanoke Civic Center Wednesday to answer tuition and admission questions for folks wanting to head back to school.

Organizer say this isn't the first Pathway to Education showcase, but it is different than previous ones.

"We took this opportunity to make it bigger and better, bring it to the Civic Center and bring all of our members together under one roof, so it has been a great experience," said Carla James, the center's director of academic and student services.

There are 13 university and college members at the Higher Education Center, which allows folks in Southwest Virginia to further their education right here in Roanoke.
