Fayette County College Fair to feature nearly 50 institutions of higher learning
Nearly 50 universities, colleges and technical schools from the four-state area are participating in the third Fayette County College and Technical Fair, to be held Wednesday, Sept. 29, at the Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus Community Center. The free event, from 9:00-11:30 a.m., is open to anyone interested in pursuing higher education.
Lindsay Bolt, the Penn State Fayette admissions counselor who is organizing the event, says, “Our college fair is an excellent opportunity for high school students in Fayette County to learn about higher education opportunities available for them after high school. We have schools coming from Pennsylvania, Maryland, Ohio and West Virginia, and I hope it inspires high school students to seek additional schooling after graduation.”
The Fayette County College and Technical Fair is geared towards traditional high school students, but others are welcome. “There will be information for military veterans who may be looking to make a change in their career and other non-traditional students who want to get a feel for the colleges, universities and technical schools in the region.” Bolt 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 is also invited to attend.
