What is a College Fair?

A college fair is an event in which representatives from a variety of colleges come together to meet one-on-one with high school students (and parents too) to talk about their respective colleges and answer questions.  They are often equipped with handouts and brochures about the campus, academic programs, course offerings, activities, sports and more.


Some tips to help you prepare are listed below. For more information, visit JLV College Counseling.
