Getting the Most from College FairsCollege fair season is upon us, and while these events can be a fun way of getting to know more about colleges, they can also be very overwhelming. To help you get the most out of these fairs, here are a few tips to keep in mind:
- Visit the tables of schools that are already on your list. It can be very tempting to go to every table and speak to all of the representatives at the fair, but this can lead to information overload.
- While you might not have an in-depth conversation with the college representatives, you should be ready to introduce yourself and talk about your interests. You should also have a question or two ready to ask the school representatives.
- If you haven’t already done so, get on the schools’ mailing lists by filling out an information card or sign-up sheet.
- College fairs can become very busy, so go early, visit the relevant schools, and then leave.
