Springfield to Host 2018 National College Fair
The 2018 Springfield National College Fair is free to high-school students, parents and anyone else interested in higher education. Students can meet one-on-one with admissions counselors at their booths to discuss entrance requirements, campus life, application deadlines and majors. Representatives will have brochures, catalogs and other literature to describe their institutions. Approximately 250 universities, colleges and schools will be represented.  To make the best use of your time at the Fair, visit nacacfairs.org/ncf to register for a personal bar code. When you visit the college booths, the reps will scan your bar code, automatically accessing your information. This will leave you more time to engage in one-on-one conversation. You can also use the computers provided at the convention site, but be aware that lines may be long at the registration tables. Your goal is to have as much time as possible to talk with the reps at their booths.
