Types of college fairs

Tuesday, November 15, 2011
When you are in the early stages of your college search, attending a college fair and speaking to admissions officers may be the best way to get a first glimpse of the schools that interest you.

Your guidance office should be able to provide you with a list of college fairs in your area. It also helps to know about the different kinds of college fairs available to you. If you have only enough time to go to one college fair, you should attend a large-scale event that will feature representatives from schools throughout the United States and, in some cases, foreign universities. The National Association for College Admission Counseling hosts national college fairs in major metropolitan areas across the country. These fairs are usually held in large convention centers.

If you are confident about attending college in or around the state you live in, you can attend a regional college fair. At one of these events you will speak to representatives from nearby schools. Your high school may also host a college fair along with college planning workshops.

There are also specialized college fairs that cater to students who plan to attend Christian schools or historically black colleges and universities. At these events, you can learn about admission requirements, academic programs, scholarships and more. At performing and visual arts fairs you can speak with school representatives who may be able to advise you on your admissions portfolio or audition requirements.

If you search for college fairs on the Web, you may find that there are a number of online virtual fairs. Web-based college fairs work much like in-person events, and allow you to visit virtual exhibit halls and chat in real time with admissions officers.ADNFCR-16000756-ID-800642034-ADNFCR - helping you find colleges and universities that offer the accredited programs that most interest you.
