WHAT’S A COLLEGE FAIR? Free and open to the public, 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 “virtual” visit to: Explore your options. Hundreds of colleges will be virtually presenting on their college, major and different career and campus topics. 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. Take notes and sign up on the colleges website to receive info by email. Check out the college’s social media account, online 360 campus tours and more!

Our monthly virtual college fairs are designed for you to learn about us at your own pace. The virtual fairs take place on the 14th of each month, September through December, and consist of a 15-minute webinar on a topic in college admission followed by a one-hour college fair where you can visit as many of our institutions as you’d like.

Each college will be represented by an admission officer and when available a current student or alumnus. This is a great way to continue learning about us as you navigate your college search.

You only need to register once! Upon submission of this form, you will receive a reminder email before each monthly college fair with the Zoom links to access the main webinar and each college’s room.

We look forward to seeing you at the virtual fair!
