Saint Louis University will play host to more than 250 colleges and Universities in an annual fair that draws thousands of local high school students and their parents. The National Association for College Admission Counseling National College Fair will be held from Noon-3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 16, in Simon Recreation Center.
Hosted annually by SLU, the event draws college counselors from more 250 institutions across the nation. They help families learn more about financial aid options and how to pick the right school for them. Counselors also meet with individual families to discuss the best majors for their students.
"The fair not only gives SLU a chance to show students our beautiful campus, but it also really helps them navigate the college admission process," says Ramon Blakley, Senior Associate Director for Recruitment in the Office of Admission. "It's a great opportunity for high school students to get all the information they need in one place."
Free to the public since 1972, the fairs allow students to also learn more about college life in general and gain other information pertinent to the college selection process.
The National Association for College Admission Counseling, founded in 1937, is an organization of 8,000 professionals from around the world dedicated to serving students as they make choices about pursuing postsecondary education.
