As the process of applying to and selecting a college becomes more and more competitive and complex, students and parents need all the help and information they can get. Attending a college fair is an excellent way to gather information about colleges and universities. The national college fair program provides valuable resources for students and parents attempting to navigate the college admission process.
The fair allows students and parents to meet one-on-one with admission representatives from a wide range of national and international, public and private, two-year and four-year colleges and universities. Participants will learn about admission requirements, financial aid, course offering and campus environment, as well as other information pertinent to the college selection process. At the fair’s counseling center, students and parents can discuss their individual needs with college experts.
“The resources and opportunities that the National College Fairs provide for students and their families are invaluable,” said Greg Ferguson, NACAC Director of National College Fair Programs and Services, “and admission professionals have been delighted by the caliber of students attending our programs.”
