High school juniors and seniors who want to attend college, but are unsure of exactly how to make that happen, are in luck.
The Districtwide College Fair and Historically Black Colleges & Universities Showcase is set for Sept. 19 from 5:30–8:30 p.m. at Ellis Davis Field House, 9191 Polk St. and nearby D.A. Hulcy STEAM Middle School. Hundreds of representatives from colleges near and far will be there to meet face-to-face and answer questions. Students should see their high school counselor to sign up for free admission and transportation.
Parents are welcome to attend the event and encouraged to bring their own questions about financial aid, campus safety and student access to campus medical care.
