Fayette County College Fair to feature nearly 50 institutions of higher learning
Apryl Kadish, the Penn State Fayette admissions counselor who organized the event, says, “High school juniors and seniors and their parents will find this valuable event to be a wonderful opportunity to learn about the higher education opportunities in southwestern Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio—all in one place. They will be able to gather a lot of information about financing their education, whether they choose a university, college, technical school or the military. They also can obtain information about the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency, scholarships, and much more.”
The event also is an opportunity for adults who want to pursue a college degree or bolster their skills for career advancement. “Adults and military veterans will find a wealth of information at the college fair, as sometimes they look to improve their careers or change career paths. High school students and adults alike might also discover new possibilities that they had not considered before,” Kadish adds.
Penn State Fayette is hosting the college and technical fair to meet the needs of students across southwestern Pennsylvania. All the high schools in the region have been invited to attend. The public also is invited to attend.
