College Fairs: What Should You be Asking College Representatives?

Attending a college fair, whether online or in-person, is one of the most beneficial ways of determining if a college is the right match and right fit for you.  You are able to gain valuable information directly from several representatives who know and understand the ins and outs of their colleges and universities.  Are you curious about admission requirements, the majors and programs offered, or student life on campus? Maybe you want to know about financial aid, like what types of full-ride scholarship opportunities does that school offer, or do they have merit-based or need-based grants?  No matter what your questions may be, college fairs are the perfect place to have all of your questions answered by several schools at a time.

For any of you that have never attended a college fair, the thought of talking to a college representative for the first time may be intimidating.  You may want to know more about a college or university, but don’t know where to begin.

With the CappexConnect Online College Fair quickly approaching, we wanted to alleviate some of that uncertainty by  providing you with a useful resource that will help you gain the most from your experience with our fair, and any fair that you attend in the future.  We’ve put together a list of suggested questions to ask college representatives, as well as a chart to organize the answers. You can later review these answers with your counselor or parents when making a decision on which college is right for you. Click here to view the College Fair Resource Guide.
