The 14th Annual Spring College Fair at Champlain Valley Union (CVU) High School will take place on Monday, April 8, from 11:30 am-1:30 pm in the CVU gym. Over 120 college representatives from the New England, Mid-Atlantic, and Midwest regions will be available to speak with students and parents.
CVU guidance counselor Jane Krasnow emphasizes, “Spring is the perfect time for juniors to explore what is available. The Fair is a manageable size and students and parents have the opportunity to talk directly with the college representatives who may be the same person who reads their application in the fall. Another benefit of the Fair is that 9th and 10th graders begin to think about the broad range of colleges and set some preliminary college goals. The number of people at the fair lends an air of excitement to the whole future planning process.”
Russ Aceto, Fairbanks House Counselor adds, “In our current economy is especially important to research all the options available and to be well informed in order to become wise consumers. While the event is based at CVU, we invite area students and parents to take advantage of this unique opportunity. We are excited that students from seven area high schools will bus students in to attend this important event.”
Four-year, two-year, and colleges with one-year certificate programs will be in attendance. The Fair is free and open to all students and parents from the surrounding communities. For more information call Jane Krasnow, or Helen Shepard at 482-7137 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
