OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) -

While Kentucky Wesleyan College students are on spring break the campus is seeing more students than usual.

Some 1,500 high school members of the Future Business Leaders of America will be on campus Thursday and Friday.

There is a regional conference and students are competing to make it to the state conference in Louisville in April.

"Rarely do we ever have our entire student body on campus at one time so this is really exciting for everybody, for all the faculty and staff to be involved, and hopefully to help introduce these 1,500 high school students what KWC can offer," said Matthew Ruark.

Around 800 students competed Thursday and the college is expecting another 700 Friday.
