The event comes to a conclusion March 7 at the Middlesboro campus, and will be held in the Welch Science and Technology Building, running from 10 a.m. until 2 oclock.

This is the first Transfer Fair solely run by Southeast, she said. Hopefully, it will be a big success with many of our students attending. By holding the fair at locations in Cumberland, Whitesburg and Middlesboro, we are hopeful we will be able to reach many of our student population.
