With looming college deadlines rapidly approaching,Central High School held its first college fair of the year on October 12, 2018. About 80 different institutions were represented at the Central High School College Fair, spanning a wide range of categories: from colleges, to universities, to study abroad programs, and also the Air Force and the Marines. The event was organized by Elana Chasan and Juling Tejada of the counseling department, their aim to create an accessible resource to Central students, a precursor to the National College Fair on Sunday, October 14 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center. The supportive student responses are a clear indication that this year’s college fair was a successful step in preparing students for the application process.
“Having 80 schools to discuss admissions policies with was helpful for myself as well as the many students who do not know which schools they are interested in. It was a great resource to relieve stress from such a tense time in our senior year.” – Senior Class President, Tristan Jennings (278)
“The college fair was a great opportunity to learn about schools I am interested in along with new schools I have not yet considered. The representatives were very engaging and this process helped me narrow down and figure out what I do or do not want in a college. I have a stronger understanding of my ideal college now.” – Abigail Leedy (278)
