Representatives of colleges from 20 states will visit with students Wednesday night at Bradshaw Mountain High School's sixth annual college fair.
"The fair gets bigger and bigger each year," said Mariela Bean, spokeswoman for the Humboldt Unified School District. "Students from all over Northern Arizona attend."
Armed forces and military academy representatives also will be there to answer questions and distribute information.
Students are encouraged to prepare a short list of questions to ask admissions office representatives, bring a pen and notebook for writing down their answers as well as a folder for information, brochures and business cards, and dress to make a good impression at college fair, which is from 5 to 7 p.m. in the Bradshaw Mountain High School Gym at 6000 E. Long Look Drive in Prescott Valley.
Bradshaw Mountain is the only rural high school in Arizona to offer a National College fair, and the event is sponsored by the National Association for College Admission Counseling.
To save time, students should consider preparing self-stick labels with their name, address, email, phone number, high school, year of graduation, intended major, and extracurricular activities that they can place on the interest/information cards college representatives will ask them to fill out at the fair.
