This year the fair will be hosted at a new location, offering the fun addition of the sights and sounds of our animal friends at the Roger Williams Park Zoo. When was the last time you have been to Zoo? Our bet is it has been too long. 


3.  One-Stop Information Shop

Choosing a college wisely can mean the difference between graduating and dropping out, so students need to do their research before sending in applications. Several school representatives, from both local and out-of-state colleges will be there to provide you with information about a possible future at their campus.


4.  Get Started

It’s never too early to start college planning. Both upperclassmen and underclassmen and their families are welcome. And for those who have not started, better late than never to make up for lost time.


5.  Mix & Match
College is an important decision – this is a great way to start researching the best match for you. Public or private, local or out-of-state, large or small, competitive or high acceptance rate, cost, facilities and amenities, athletics, and so much more. Make a list of what is important to you. See which schools match the preferences on your list.


6.  Get Your Questions Answered
Admissions representative know their schools inside and out. They field questions year-round and love to talk about what your experience would be like at their campus. Don’t be shy, bring a list of questions. And if there is a question you forget about, you can email those representatives after the fair for the follow ups. Remember to ask for their business card.
