High school juniors and seniors can connect with representatives from colleges across the country Nov. 2 at the University of Maryland Eastern Shore’s Tri-County College Fair.
The free event, which is in its 16th year, is from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. in the William P. Hytche Athletic Center.
Students can get information on a wide range of options to consider, Jinawa McNeil, UMES’ associate director of admissions and recruitment, said. Along with the traditional mix of four-year colleges and technical and community colleges, are specialty schools and branches of the military services.
“The university is proud to provide this valuable service to the community each year,” McNeil said. “It provides area students with a way to meet with representatives from across the country in one location here on Delmarva—a one-stop shop for higher education.” Prospective college students, she said, can learn about admissions requirements, priority deadlines, academic programs, scholarships and other opportunities.
