Lane Tech’s 43rd Annual College Fair will be on Thursday, March 23, 2017, from 6:30 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. Students and parents will have the opportunity to meet with representatives from more than 150 colleges and universities from across the country. 

This event will give you the chance to talk to admission officers and get information on everything about their colleges—from what courses are offered to what life on campus is like. College Night will introduce you to new colleges and help you narrow down your list. In order to ensure a successful night, it is best to have a plan. Review the following for some ideas to make the most of this or any college night: 


The program for the College Night includes a list of colleges in attendance (see below). I encourage you to research the colleges in advance especially the ones that may not be familiar to you. Remember, you want to select the college that is the best fit for you! Before you head out the door, don’t forget to pack a pen and small notebook, your questions, and a bag to hold all the college brochures and information you will collect. 

REGISTER FOR A BARCODE AT STRIVEFAIR.COM.  Show your barcode to colleges who can scan it to send you more information about their schools.  It’s free and saves time. The next day, you’ll receive an email report with info on the colleges that scanned you.


There will be over 150 colleges in attendance, focus your visit so you can get in-depth knowledge about the colleges that really interest you.  Check out the "Questions to Ask College Reps" for suggested questions to ask college reps if you're stumped!  After you visit a college’s booth, take a few minutes to write down what you’ve learned. Try to leave time at the end just to browse through some of the booths that you didn’t get to—you can stumble upon a great college that you hadn’t previously considered. Also, be sure to attend one of the Financial Aid Seminars. 



After the college fair, you'll probably come home with bags full of information. Here are some post-fair dos and don'ts to keep you on track:

    • Do: Relax when you get home. Take a break — you've earned it!
    • Don't: Put the college materials in the back of your closet. Keep them on hand for when you're ready to review them.
    • Do: Look through the materials, and your notes, within the week.
    • Don't: Keep everything. Rule out colleges that aren't a good fit.
    • Do: Research colleges that interest you. Explore websites, request more information from admission offices and plan to visit.
