The National College Fair in Minneapolis will be held on Sept. 27 and 28. For information about the college fair and colleges that will be in attendance please go to: https://www.nacacfairs.org/attend/national-college-fairs/whats-a-national-college-fair/ . Free and open to the public, National College Fairs are the perfect place to kick off your college search. Admission representatives from schools across the country are all gathered in one place. Their goal: To encourage you to learn more about their institutions, and help you sort through the qualities you’re looking for in a college. Use your visit to:

  • Explore your options. Each fair draws representatives from 175 to 400 colleges. The schools are located throughout the US, and from around the globe.
  • Ask questions. What’s college life like? What majors are popular on campus? Chatting with representatives from a variety of colleges can help you cement your own preferences.
  • Gather information. Pick up brochures and other materials about the schools that interest you. Ask admission reps to scan your barcode—an easy way to help colleges follow up with you after the fair.

 

  • Minnesota Education Fair. St. Cloud State University Wednesday, Oct. 11 from 9-11 a.m.
  • We are expecting around 90 representatives from public and private universities and colleges, community and technical colleges, trade and career schools and military organizations. A list of the participating schools is attached. This is a great opportunity for students and their parents to visit with representatives and explore a variety of options for continued education beyond high school. It is also a great learning tool for career exploration classes.
  • We hope that you will encourage your students and their parents to attend the fair by including information about the event in your student bulletin, parent newsletter, and/or school website. I have attached a news release for your publications and website. Also, if you would like posters announcing the event, I would be happy to send those your way.
  • Save time at the college fair – encourage your students to register ahead of time! They can register their personal information and create a personal barcode to be scanned at the fair by colleges that they are interested in. Students register at gotocollegefairs.com before coming to the MEF, print out the barcode, and bring it to the fair.
  • The fair will take place in Halenbeck Hall on the south end of campus, and parking will be available in K Lot.
