Registration is now open for employers for the annual Community Day to be held 0:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 23, on the Oval at Missouri Southern State University.

Sponsored by the Career Services office, the event allows students to visit with area businesses and non-profits, sample products and explore job and volunteer opportunities.

“Missouri Southern students, faculty and staff look forward to Community Day every year,” said Alex Gandy, director of Career Services. “Having local businesses and community organizations on campus helps students learn about the community in which they go to school. We often hear students say, ‘I didn’t know that place existed! I am so excited to go check them out!’”

The registration fee is $25, which includes one table and two folding chairs. The $200 sponsor level includes premium table placement and company logo on event marketing materials and online. Vendor registration must be received by Aug. 14 and sponsor registration by Aug. 7.
