How to Navigate College Fairs
Independent College Consultant, Marie Morris, stopped by with great information about the benefits of attending college fairs...and the best way to navigate them once you're there.
There is a major college fair this weekend:
Portland College Fair
So what should a student do at the College Fair?
Should a student go with their parents? Absolutely! Lots for the parents to learn.
Does a student need to prepare? To get the most out of the fair, registering ahead and looking at the schools that will be present will help. The college fair can be overwhelming, but if a student has an idea of a few schools they want to talk to, that can give them a plan. Most of the people staffing the booths are admissions folks, the first ones to read your application. Also, look at when the workshops at occurring and plan around that.
