Spring is the season for students and parents to attend college fairs and information sessions. These are terrific opportunities to connect with admissions representatives and learn more about prospective colleges.
Here is The Coach’s list of suggested spring events:
- NY National College Fair – Javits Convention Center, April 22
- Mercer County Regional College Fair – Mercer County Community College, April 24
- NJ National College Fair – Meadowlands Expo Center, April 25
- Monmouth County Regional College Fair – Brookdale Community College, April 26
- Colleges That Change Lives Fair – New York City, May 20
- Exploring Educational Excellence (Brown, Chicago, Columbia, Cornell and Rice) – Woodbridge, May 22
- Exploring College Options (Duke, Georgetown, Harvard, UPenn and Stanford) – TBA
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.
