A college fair highlighting Colleges and Universities. This event is geared toward High School Students, but is certainly open to students of all ages. The colleges represented will set up individual tables full of information and giveaways. Attendees will have the opportunity to make their way around the fair and gain information on as many schools in attendance as they wish. Those students who are high school seniors and wish to apply, will have access to computers to complete applications on the spot. During the event, information will be provided about scholarship opportunities, essay writing tips, and insight on what to do after you have been accepted. The event will be open, meaning students and parents may come and go as they please and do not have to stay for the whole event in its entirety. Confirmed colleges and universities attending include:
The Ohio State University
Central State University
Kentucky State University
