Tips for attending the National College Fair:
Students and parents from Yavapai County can attend this event free. College fairs are a good chance for you to interact with admission representatives from a wide range of schools. Consider these tips as you prepare for and while you attend the fair:

• Register online at www.gotocollegefairs.com. Then print or upload your barcode to your iPhone. The colleges will scan it so you will not have to fill out information cards at the fair.

• Prepare a short list of questions (bring a pen and small notebook).

• Decide which colleges interest you, but also talk with representatives from other schools.

• Collect brochures and business cards.

The Seventh Annual National College Fair takes place Wednesday, Oct. 16, from 5:30-7 p.m. at Bradshaw Mountain High School gym for all northern Arizona students and parents.

Nearly 70 different public and private universities and colleges from Arizona, 23 states and Canada will have admission office representatives available to answer questions. Armed forces and military academy reps also will be on hand to distribute information.

Bradshaw Mountain is the only rural high school in the state to offer a National College Fair.

This year, the high school is incorporating technology so students are able to provide their information online. They can visit the website gotocollegefairs.com and enter their demographic and career interests. They can print out or upload a barcode to their iPhone that the college reps scan at their tables, thus avoiding the time-consuming task of filling out information cards during the Fair.

As in the past, all Yavapai County students are invited to attend. Admission is free to students and parents. This event is sponsored by the National Association for College Admission Counseling.
