As the process of applying to and selecting a college becomes more and more competitive and complex, students and parents need all the help and information they can get. The Philadelphia National College Fair held Sunday, October 29, 2006 and at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, PA, provides valuable resources for students and parents attempting to navigate the college-admission process. Sponsored by the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC), this event is free and open to the public, from 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. The resources and opportunities that the National College Fairs provide for students and their families are invaluable

The fair allows students and parents to meet one-on-one with admission representatives from a wide range of national and international, public and private, two-year and four-year colleges and universities. Participants will learn about admission requirements, financial aid, course offerings, and campus environment, as well as other information pertinent to the college-selection process. At the fair’s counseling center, students and parents can discuss their individual needs with college experts. "The resources and opportunities that the National College Fairs provide for students and their families are invaluable," Greg Ferguson, NACAC director of national college fairs programs and services, said. "And admission professionals have been delighted by the caliber of students attending our programs." Now in its 33rd year, the National College Fair program annually helps more than 755,500 students and families nationwide explore their options for higher education, making it one of the most visible college recruitment tools in the country. NACAC currently sponsors fairs in 47 locations.
