Hundreds of students invaded the Solomon P. Ortiz Center for the Explore Your Port, World and Future program.

Students got to check out the various jobs associated with port operations, everything from the Coast Guard to Port Administrations.

"I haven't heard of a lot of these companies until now," Flour Bluff senior Dylan Gembol said. "Now that I've come here, I know what they do. It's really rather interesting to be here."

"I think it's really important for students to gain the exposure here and learn about the opportunities that are available here in Corpus, and the important resource that the Port is to the community here," Flour Bluff senior Alex Call said.

This is the second year the Port has hosted the event.
