Start Your College Search at a Fall College Fair
Fall is a great time to start your college search. Why? There are tons of college fairs you can attend to learn about the college options available to you.
What to do at a college fair:
At a college fair, you can talk to college admission counselors and collect brochures with information on colleges. Talking one-on-one with admission representatives can give you good insight into the college.
You can ask the college admission counselors about anything college-related you want to know from what student clubs and sports are on campus and what types of college scholarships are available, to what majors are most popular and how the college helps students find jobs after graduation.
