The Fall 2016 Rhode Island College Fair will be held at Rhode Island College in Providence.

The Fall 2016 Rhode Island College Fair is free to high school students, parents and anyone else interested in higher education. Students can meet one-on-one with admission counselors at their booths to discuss entrance requirements, campus life, application deadlines and majors. Representatives will have brochures, catalogs and other literature.

Deciding what to do after high school is one of the most important decisions that a high-school senior will make. Representatives from colleges, universities and technical schools from all over the United States will be at the fair to assist you in making this decision. Going through your mind should be such questions as: "What type of job do I want?"; "Do I want a career?"; and if so, "What do I need to do to get there?"

For those students who wish to enroll in a college or university, questions involving majors, size of school, costs, and types of extracurricular and social activities 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 a program like this. You should research these institutions on the web and familiarize yourself with those that interest you. College representatives are eager to discuss their institution with students who seem genuinely interested, and who are somewhat knowledgeable about the school.

Visit first the tables of the colleges in which you are primarily interested. If possible select at least three or four colleges or schools in which you are definitely interested before coming to the college fair. Plan on visiting with these representatives first. If there is 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.

A college fair is a good time to expand your knowledge about colleges and/or careers, in general. The representatives of the various institutions have a wealth of experiences and backgrounds, and they will be very pleased to answer any questions you have. You may even find that there will be other institutions at the program that may better serve your needs than the ones you were originally considering. Therefore, take advantage of the opportunity to investigate other institutions.

If you think you cannot afford a college education, or afford the college of your choice, you could be pleasantly surprised. Too many families are automatically limiting their college selection, or whether or not to even attend college, simply by looking at the cost of tuition and room and board. Very few families can afford to write checks for these costs without the availability of some type of financial assistance. Contrary to some public opinion, there are many opportunities to get financial assistance, even for upper-middle income families. College selection should not be limited to only the schools a family may mistakenly think they can afford.

This college fair is not meant to be the last step in your search for the right college or university. It is most often considered to be one of the first steps in your search process. After you accumulate the information you receive at the program, you should sit down, read, and digest the many pamphlets you will most likely have. After that, narrow your choices to five or six institutions in which you are interested and visit them. Spend as much time on these campuses as you can. Arrange an interview in the Admission Office; talk to students, faculty and alumni, if possible, sit in on classes, and spend a weekend.

Choosing a college should not be a haphazard process. Some decisions on college selection are made for very odd reasons. They should not be. Remember, the college in which you decide to enroll should, and will, have a profound impact on the rest of your life.
