College Counseling News

The Spokane National College Fair will be held at the Spokane Convention Center on Tuesday, November 5 from 9am to Noon and in the evening from 6 to 8pm.  Students are encouraged to attend to learn about various colleges and to speak with admission representatives for schools of interest.  For more information about the fair, including a list of colleges attending, Click Here.

The 9th grade class will visit the fair that morning, but college counselor Kerry Clark encourages all students to attend in the evening after school from 6-8pm.  If you plan to attend, please register through the above link and print out the barcode you generate through your registration so it is easier for you to share your information with any colleges you speak with.  Also, for schools that track demonstrated interest, this is a great way to show you have made contact with a school’s representative.  The person at the booth for each school is often the person who reads applications for our area, so try to be prepared with some questions to ask to make the most of your time and make a good impression with admission representatives.

If you have questions about this event or would like help preparing to meet with school representatives, feel free to email your SGS college counselors at happy.avery@sgs.org or kerry.clark@sgs.org and they will be glad to assist.
