College Fairs Really Aren’t Scary

Halloween can be scary, but college fairs don’t have to be!  Especially with such nice, awesome people behind those tables that are full of information.  A few tips for making it an even more pleasant experience: Bring labels so that filling out information cards is easier and takes less time.  Prepare some questions.  Do a little research and figure out what is important to you.  Ask questions such as:

-How big is your school?

-What is the student to teacher ratio?

-How do your students get internships?

-Is your school set in an urban, suburban or rural environment?

-How do you apply and what are the deadlines?

I had the chance to attend and represent UMBC at the Philadelphia NACAC Visual and Performing Arts College Fair this evening, and I am off to New York tomorrow!
