GENEVA – Geneva High School will host an Illinois Regional College Fair with representatives from more than 160 in-state and out-of-state colleges and universities who will be available to meet students and answer their questions from 6 to 8 p.m. April 4 at 416 McKinley Ave., Geneva, officials announced in a news release.
The event is open to students from Geneva, Batavia, Kaneland, St. Charles East, St. Charles North, West Chicago, South Elgin, Burlington-Central high schools.
Geneva High School Director of Counseling and Advising David King stated in the release that the regional college fair was “an amazing opportunity for our students to learn more about colleges and universities from admissions experts.”
“These professionals are extensions of the campus and this is a great way for our students to show their true interest in a school while also determining their ‘best fit’ university or college,” King stated in the release. “It’s also so close to home, this is a can’t-miss opportunity.”
The Illinois Regional College Fair is a project of the Illinois Association for College Admission Counseling.
More than 40 public and private Illinois colleges have confirmed attendance, and more than 120 schools from other states and international schools will also be represented.
Those planning to attend can register online at www.strivescan.com.
“Students should treat this like an initial interview,” King stated in the release. “They are interviewing the school as much as the representatives are learning about their educational passions. They should come prepared with two to three specific questions and a game plan of schools to visit. There are only two hours allotted for the fair, and each visit should be meaningful.”
South Elgin High School is also hosting a regional college fair from 6 to 8 p.m. April 16 open to all U-46 and neighboring Fox Valley school districts.
