Here is The Coach’s list of suggested spring events:
- Mercer County Regional College Fair – Mercer County Community College, April 25
- NJ National College Fair – Meadowlands Expo Center, April 26 & 27

Coach’s Tip: Did you know that admissions counselors attending regional college fairs are the same people that will read your application when (if) you apply. Introducing yourself at a local event is one of the best ways for students to demonstrate interest and put a face to their application file.
