Personalized barcode allows you to maximize your college fair experience

Thursday, May 17, 2012
Attending a college fair should be one of the first steps in your search for a college. These events are held throughout the country in a variety of venues ranging from school gymnasiums to large conference centers. College fairs provide an excellent opportunity for students to gather a lot of information about a number of colleges all in one place.

Typically, part of the college fair process is to fill out information cards to leave at each college booth so that you can receive additional information from the colleges. If you are attending one of the larger regional fairs sponsored by the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC), see if it offers you the option of registering beforehand so you can maximize your time at the fair.

According to NACAC’s Web site, registration is not necessary to attend the college fair;  the events are free and open to the public. However, if you choose to register you will be able to spend more time speaking to college reps or visiting more booths.

By registering for the college fair, students can get their personal information to colleges and universities in a more convenient manner. The online registration form asks for basic contact information as well as high school extracurricular activities and intended college major. After completing the registration process you will receive a personalized barcode that you can print out and bring to the college fair. The school representatives will scan the barcode to access your information.

"The bar code is actually amazing," Sylvia Hernandez, chair of the West Michigan National College Fair, told "They can ask more questions [and] it encourages more interaction between the students and the institutions."ADNFCR-16000756-ID-800778174-ADNFCR - helping you find colleges and universities that offer the accredited programs that most interest you.
