What to do after attending a college fair

Tuesday, September 20, 2011
If your trip to a college fair was a success, you will return home with an armful of brochures, notes and other information on various colleges and universities. So now what?

First, rather than just tossing all the college information you collected in a pile, organize it. Sort the colleges by categories like size of school, location, or possible majors. Next, look over any handwritten notes you took at the fair. Revise sloppy notes to avoid confusion later on. You should also take a moment to include any points you may have forgotten to write down while they are still fresh in your mind.

In the event that you had a lengthy conversation with one or more of the college representatives, it never hurts to thank them for their time. While you definitely were not the only student they spoke to, this simple act has the potential to leave a big impression. Or, if you received contact information in case you had more questions, take the reps up on their offer and give them a call or send them an e-mail.

It is also important to remember that college fairs are scheduled throughout the year in a number of locations. Depending on where you live, you may want to attend another fair, or better still, start scheduling campus visits. ADNFCR-16000756-ID-800600502-ADNFCR - helping you find colleges and universities that offer the accredited programs that most interest you.
