South Central College will have a Kiosk display at the River Hills Mall in Mankato from May-July. This is the fourth year that SCC has rented space at River Hills in an attempt to capture the attention of the teens and young adults that frequent the mall during the summer. See me if you have promotional ideas for the mall display.
