Students, parents invited to College Fair 2018

Event offers opportunity to learn about more than 100 colleges, schools

What: Students interested in attending college – and their parents – can meet representatives of more than 100 universities, colleges, and proprietary and military schools at College Fair 2018. This event is co-sponsored by Baltimore County Public Schools and the Community College of Baltimore County.

While information about schools can be obtained online, college fairs offer distinct benefits. At a college fair, students can:

  • Ask questions.
  • Discover colleges that they hadn’t considered.
  • Make personal connections and positive impressions with college representatives.
  • Glean more details about colleges of interest.
  • Learn firsthand what makes each campus unique.
  • Get information about colleges that may be too far away to visit in person.
  • Learn about what colleges are looking for in their freshman class.
