The Fall 2017 Philadelphia National College Fair will be held at the Pennsylvania Convention Center

Representatives from more than 400 two-year and four-year colleges, nursing schools, business schools and trade schools will participate in the Philadelphia National College Fair which will be held on Sunday, November 12th at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.

Officers and enlisted personnel from the various branches of the military services will also be on hand to discuss the military’s enlistment and education programs such as R.O.T.C., the military academies and the GI Bill.

The College Fair, sponsored by the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC), is a timesaving oppor- tunity for students and parents to gather a lot of information in one day. College admissions representatives will be on hand to answer key questions ranging from acceptance policies to student“faculty ratio.

In addition to asking questions, students and parents will be able to set up college interviews, pick up literature and learn about the various financial aid programs available.

Review the list of participating colleges and make a list of the booths you’d like to visit. To make the best use of your time at the Fair you can visit to register for a personal bar code. When you visit the college booths, the reps will scan your bar code, automatically accessing your informa- tion. This will leave you more time to engage in one-on-one conversation. You can also use the computers provided at the convention site, but be aware that lines may be long at the registration tables. Your goal is to have as much time as possible to talk with the reps at their booths.

Deciding what to do after high school is one of the most important decisions that a high-school senior will make. In preparation for the Fair, students should ask themselves such questions as: "What kind of jobs would I like to do?"; "Do I want a career?"; and if so, "How do I prepare for it?"

For those students who wish to enroll in a college or university, questions involving majors, size of school, costs, and types of extracurricular activities and social life need to be asked and answered.

Students and parents should read as much as possible about the colleges and universities in which they are interested before attending the Fair. If possible, get a viewbook or catalog on these institutions ahead of time, and familiarize yourself with the facts that interest you. This information can be obtained by calling or writing the individual schools directly or from the high-school guidance office as well as the local libraries. College representatives are always more eager to discuss their institutions with students who seem genuinely interested, and who are somewhat knowledgeable about the schools.

Before coming to the Fair, select at least three or four colleges or schools in which you are definitely interested. If there is much of a line before a particular school, go to another table and return at a later time. The representatives will be there throughout the times posted for the Fair and you might find that visiting with them when they are not busy will be better for you because they will be able to answer your questions more fully.

On the other hand, if you know the major you wish to study, but are not sure which colleges or universities have this offering, be sure to take advantage of the Counseling Center located in the center of the Exhibit Hall. There you can obtain a listing of all the schools with that particular major, as well as speak to counselors from area high-schools and agencies who are there to help advise you.
