Rhode Island Regional College Fair

Students and parents are invited to attend the “in-person” 44th annual Rhode Island Regional College Fair to be held on Sunday, October 24, 2021, from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm. This year’s event will be held at Bryant University in Smithfield, Rhode Island. This is a unique opportunity to learn more about a host of post-secondary educational opportunities, and the college application process.

 

Admission representatives will be on hand to discuss your college career. In addition, The NACAC 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.

 

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.

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 prepared you are for these Fairs, the more you’ll get out of them.
