Gannon University Hosts College Fair

Posted: May 11, 2015

Representatives of more than 75 colleges and universities will converge on Gannon University for the Spring 2015 College Fair.

The free event, which will be held Tuesday, May 12 from 6:30-8 p.m. in Gannon's Hammermill Center, 620 Peach St., is called What's Your Next Step?

Area high school students will have the opportunity to speak with representatives of two-year, four-year and postgraduate public and private colleges and universities from seven states. The event allows college-bound students from the area to survey a wide range of institutions in a short period of time.

Participating institutions will bring displays and materials to help students navigate the array of choices facing rising high school seniors and younger students who want to make their college plans in advance.

Gannon University's undergraduate admissions department is organizing the event. Tom Camillo, the department's director said, "We are excited to be able to provide an opportunity for high school students from across the region to engage with so many colleges and universities. This is a great way to begin conversations with post-secondary institutions and to help pave the way for their college search process which will ultimately include visits to these schools."
