Stop by the registration table and register for the door prize drawing.  We will have 70+ colleges/universities in attendance.  This is a great time to speak with a college rep one-on-one.  Parents are strongly encouraged to attend.  We will have several area schools from neighboring communities in attendance as well.

The 2013 Columbus Area College Fair will be from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Thursday Oct 3, on the main level of Columbus East High School, 230 Marr Road.

More than 70 colleges, universities and military branches will participate (SEE LIST BELOW).

Representatives from schools ranging from Purdue and Indiana universities to smaller colleges will answer questions about programs, costs, dual credit transfer opportunities, financial aid options, cars on campus and possible scholarships.

The fair is free and open to the public.

Parents are strongly encouraged to attend with their students, said Doug Moore, director of guidance at Columbus East.

“It’s a great way for parents to get some information in a one-stop-shopping experience,” he said.

With tuition at public institutions averaging $21,000 a year and tuition ranging from $30,000 to $50,000 at private schools, Moore said, it’s more important than ever for families to find the best fit.

About 1,500 parents and high school students are expected to attend the fair.

The number of colleges planning to attend the fair is up from recent years.

Katie Vandergriff, East’s college and scholarship coordinator, said the economy caused some schools not to participate in the past few years.

“More colleges coming back means more options for students,” she said.

Vandergriff urged attendees to ask schools whether they will waive application fees.

Attendees should park in East’s parking lot off of Marr Road across from the baseball diamonds.
