College Fair tips:
Preparing ahead of time will help students get the most out of the college fair experience! The fair is intended for students to get the information they need to make the best decision for their post-high school career. Take full advantage of it!

• Create a list of schools you want to learn about and visit those tables first. If you have extra time, stop by tables for schools you hadn’t considered.
• Make a list questions you want answered by each representative. Personalize these questions to address your own interests and goals. Avoid questions that could easily be answered on a college’s website or admissions materials.
• Dress professionally to create a good first impression.
• Remember a pen and notebook to record responses to your questions.
• Create pre-printed address labels to save time at each table.
• Remember to include: name; address; phone number; email address; high school and year of graduation; major/s of interest; sports and activities of interest.
