High school students and their parents will be able to shop for higher education at the Exton Mall on Monday, Nov. 13 from 7-9 PM, when representatives from more than 230 colleges nationwide gather for the 2017 Chester County College Fair.

Attendees will be able to complete a cross-country higher education tour in a matter of hours as they navigate the college and university booths.

Coordinated by the Chester County Intermediate Unit, the fair is open to the general public and admission is free. More than 5,000 students from 45 area high schools are expected to visit the fair and explore their post-graduation options.

Students and parents are invited to meet with representatives from colleges and universities across the U.S., as well as nursing schools, junior colleges, community and technical colleges, trade and skill schools, and branches of the military.

In addition to discussing entrance requirements, financial aid, campus life, and academic programs with the counselors, participants will also walk away with informational brochures and catalogs.

According to Brenda McNeil, CCIU special events coordinator, there will be something for everyone at the fair, from four- and two-year colleges, to specialized schools.

“The fair will feature over 230 colleges and institutions from across the country, saving families time and money on college visits and helping students to narrow down their top choices,” she said.

The College Fair is organized by the CCIU on behalf of the guidance counselors of Chester County. More information, including an up-to-date list of participating schools, can be found here. Please check often for updates, as colleges and institutions are added daily.
