The National College Fair is organized by the National Association for College Admissions Counselors. One major difference from the Columbus Suburban College Fair is that they do ask all students to register for the fair in advance. Registering will allow you to provide your information one time so that you save time from having to fill out information cards as you walk through the college fair. You will print and bring the pass with an indicated barcode so that as you walk around and talk to college admissions representatives they can scan the barcode to receive your information. This allows you to spend your time talking about academics and other opportunities on campus instead of filling out the same information multiple times. You can register at www.nacacfairs.org/ncfstudentregistration to receive fair details, avoid lines onsite and share your contact information with your choice schools. Students who register using their smart phone can also save the image of the barcode for later use. Be sure to bring your barcode print out with you to the college fair!
When you are at the fair you will be able to pick up the on-site locator for the latest school list and a booth location map. In addition to talking individually with college admissions representatives, you can also attend a workshop on topics such as writing a great essay, financial aid, and getting the most out of the college search process.
I hope you will take advantage of this great opportunity to further your college search.
