WHAT IS A COLLEGE FAIR?

Free and open to all students, college fairs allow students and their families to interact with representatives from a wide range of post-secondary colleges and universities to discuss:

Admission requirements
Financial Aid
College Majors
College entrance exam testing (ACT/SAT)
 

WHAT HAPPENS AT A COLLEGE FAIR?

Admission representatives from a variety of colleges are all gathered in one place, just waiting to answer your questions. You can stop by the table of any represented college/university.

College fairs are an exciting chance to talk to admission counselors about schools you may be considering after high school. You may even discover that your “dream school’ is a college or university that you may not have even considered before attending a college fair. In addition to talking to representatives, college fairs allow you to pick up brochures and sign-up for college information mailing lists.
 
 

BEFORE THE FAIR...

Think about the following:

  • Do you want to attend a two year or four-year institution? Co-ed or single sex?
  • What size school do you want to attend?
  • What programs of study are you considering?
  • How far from home do you wish to go?
  • Do you wish to participate in any specific extra-curricular activities or athletics?

DURING THE FAIR...

Navigating a college fair can be challenging. There are many booths to visit and people to talk to. Focus your visit so you can get some in-depth knowledge about the colleges that really interest you.

Review the list of colleges at the fair and plan to visit the colleges that interest you most.

Follow the map which shows where college booths are located and plan out a route to avoid back-tracking.

After you visit a college’s booth, take a few minutes to jot down what you have learned.

Try to leave some time at the end just to browse through some of the booths you didn’t get to-you could stumble on a great college you hadn’t considered.

Ask about admissions requirements and scholarship opportunities.

Ask about student body size and student teacher ratio.
 


BEFORE YOU GO OUT…

Before you head out the door don’t forget to bring a pen and small notebook, your questions, and a bag to hold all the college brochures and information you’ll get. Consider printing out self-stick labels with your address, contact information, and graduation date to stick on college information cards at the fair.


 

AFTER THE FAIR

Here are some post-fair dos and don’ts to keep you on track:

Don’t: Put the college materials in the back of your closet. Keep them on hand for when you’re ready to review them.

Do: Look through the materials, and your notes, within the week

Don’t: Keep everything. Weed out colleges that aren’t a good fit.

Do: Research colleges that interest you. Explore websites, request more information from admissions offices, and plan to visit.
