Northern Westchester College Conference
Representatives from more than 300 two-year and four-year colleges, nursing schools and business schools will participate in the Westchester-Putnam College Conferences. The first Conference will be held at the Westchester County Center in White Plains on Wednesday, October 23 from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m. A second conference will be held at Yorktown High School in Yorktown Heights on Thursday, October 24 from 6:30 to 9:00 p.m.
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. Also, student loan officers from a number of local banks
will have literature and application forms for government subsidized and regular bank loan programs.
The College Conference is a timesaving opportunity for students and parents to gather a lot of information in one day.
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. You may also want to print out some labels or cards with your personal information — name, address, e-mail, graduation year, and anticipated major. Give these to the reps at the college booths. This preparation will allow you more time to speak with the representatives and to visit all the colleges on your list.
Read through this issue of College Fair Guide. There are many articles and items of information which will be helpful to you. Parents may wish to review the Financial Aid Process section beginning on page 33. The more prepared you are for the College Conference, the more you’ll get out of it.
