Providence National College Fair

Colleges are Eager to Meet High School Students Virtually

 

The Spring 2021 National College Fairs have been transitioned to a Virtual Platform. With in-person events limited across the country, college admissions offices are eager to connect with sophomores, juniors and seniors who are looking toward postsecondary education. 

 

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

 

NACAC’s Virtual College Fairs are one-day events that are free to attend. These interactive events are designed with the mobile user in mind. Students can login from their phones or computers. Students and parents are invited to attend one or all of these online events. 

 

More than 600 college and university representatives will be online and available to answer questions. Students and parents will also be able to schedule one-on-one virtual meetings. Students can sign up for a Virtual College Fair at virtualcollegefairs.org

New England Virtual College Fairs

  • Wednesday, April 14: 7:00 – 8:30 p.m.

  • Sunday, May 16: 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.

While many students have adapted to learning online via video conferencing, or an in-person/remote hybrid model, they should continue to prepare for what happens after graduation. Students should take this opportunity to reach out to their college counselors. Guidance office personnel are working hard to make sure students have the tools they need to search for the right college. 

 

Students should ask their counselors about virtual events in their community. Colleges are looking forward to connecting with students and their parents during these online events.

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. 

 

Read through this issue of College Fair Guide. There are many articles, charts, useful hints and items of information which will be helpful to you. The more pre- pared you are for these Virtual Fairs, the more you’ll get out of them.
