College Fairs Popping Up This Spring

Sunday, February 16, 2020

With spring weather on the horizon, college admission representatives from hundreds of institutions are making their way to college fairs throughout the country to meet prospective students and share their school's story.  Chances are that a college fair will be one of your stops along the college-shopping journey.

This spring, the "granddaddy" of area college fairs, NACAC Boston National Fair 2020, will be coming to town from Thursday, April 30 - Friday, May 1.

This widely-anticipated event expects to host more than 350 two-year and four-year colleges, nursing schools, business schools and trade schools at the Massachusetts Convention Center Authority located at 415 Summer Street, Boston.

By attending a college fair, students can learn about a wide variety of schools' offerings and connect with admissions reps. This is a bonus opportunity in particular for students and parents who may not be able to make in-person campus visits or who wish to gather more information before investing time and money in travel arrangements.

And before late April blooms, there are several college fairs scheduled for earlier in the spring.  Have a look at what is coming up in your local area this spring ...
