NEWS & EVENTS

College Fairs are an excellent resource for students and families to learn about hundreds of colleges in one visit.  
 
While there are so many benefits for attending a College Fair, here are a few key reasons why you should attend:
 
- You will have the opporunity to meet an admissions represenative and ask questions specifically related to your situation. Their advice can be greatly beneficial in your application process.
 
- Finding the best suited college for you is difficult to research online. Attending College Fairs affords you the opportunity to shop in person and determine if there are colleges that fit your needs.
 
- You will most definitely learn about colleges you've never heard of before.
 
- Attending a College Fair is an affordable (and time saving) option. And, after identifying which colleges you are interested in, you can always schedule an in-person visit.
 
- Many College Fairs also provide information sessions such as Financial Aid, Transfer Admissions, or Athletic Recruitment.
