Northern New Jersey National College Fair

Representatives from over 200 two-year and four-year colleges, nursing schools, business schools and trade schools will participate in the Northern New Jersey National College Fair which will be held on Wednesday, April 20 at the Meadowlands Exposition Center at Harmon Meadows.

Officers and enlisted personnel from the various branches of the military services will also be on hand to discuss the military’s enlistment and education programs such as R.O.T.C., the military academies and the GI Bill.

The College Fair, sponsored by the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC), is a timesaving opportunity for students and parents to gather a lot of information in one day. College admissions representatives will be on hand to answer key questions ranging from acceptance policies to student–faculty ratio.

In addition to asking questions, students and parents will be able to set up college interviews, pick up literature and learn about the various financial aid programs available.

Review the list of participating colleges and make a list of the booths you’d like to visit. To make the best use of your time at the Fair, visit nacacfairs.org/ncf to register for a personal bar code. When you visit the college booths, the reps will scan your bar code, automatically accessing your information. This will leave you more time to engage in one-on-one conversation. You can also use the computers provided at the convention site, but be aware that lines may be long at the registration tables. Your goal is to have as much time as possible to talk with the reps at their booths.

Military Options 

Many recruiting stations are closed for personal visits, but are still available to discuss your future in the military. You may ask a recruiter about education programs such as R.O.T.C., the military academies, the Post 9/11-GI Bill and Yellow Ribbon Program. Serving in the military is not only an honor but can be a great way to finance your education. 

 

Whether a student is thinking about a community college vs. a four-year college, public vs. private, in- state vs. out-of state, a career in the military, a gap year, or getting a job after high school, now is the time to start preparing for the future.
