How do I make the most of college fairs?

Hi all! I'm a high school junior, and I've been attending college fairs to learn more about different schools. I want to make the most of these events, but I'm not sure what questions I should be asking. Can anyone offer advice on how to get the most out of college fairs? Thanks for your help!

Hi there! It's great that you're being proactive about attending college fairs. They're a fantastic opportunity to gather information and get a feel for different colleges. Here are a few tips to help you make the most of these events:

1. Prepare a list of questions beforehand. Some examples include:

- What is the average class size?

- What is the student-to-faculty ratio?

- What kind of academic support services are available?

- What opportunities are there for internships or study abroad?

2. Bring a notepad and pen to take notes. Jot down key points so you can compare colleges later.

3. Don't be shy! Speak with the college representatives and ask your questions. They're there to help and provide information.

4. Collect brochures and business cards from the colleges you're interested in. This will make it easier to follow up with them later if you have more questions.

5. Attend any informational sessions or workshops if they're available. These can provide valuable insights into the application process, financial aid, and more.

Best of luck at the college fairs!
