Over 60 Schools Confirmed for Upcoming College Fair



At last year's college fair, Gables students were given the opportunity to meet with representatives from over 50 colleges and universities from all over the country.

The annual held college fair is an amazing opportunity for students to visit with different college representatives, all under one roof. Students have the advantage of asking all the questions they please, rather than searching through the immense Internet outlet for the very same questions that may remain unanswered.

Senior Konstantin Petrenko took a part of last year’s event, and felt his time there was invaluable.

“By attending the college fair I know where I want to apply to this year. It helped to reinforce knowledge I knew prior to attending and informed me on information that I wouldn’t have gotten without participating. Anyone who can should jump at the chance to attend, it was well worth it.”

This year, the College Fair will take place on Thursday, October 11, 2012. To date, over 60 schools are confirmed to take part in this prestigious event.

Juniors and seniors can get their tickets in front of the new building on Monday (10/8), Tuesday (10/9), and Wednesday (10/10) before school from 6:45-7:10AM and during lunch from 10:30AM-12:50PM. All students will need to have a ticket to enter the college fair and be in their school uniform.

*Juniors: Please see your English teacher for more information on your important role in creating questions to ask the reps at this year’s college fair.

Last year tickets ran out so make sure to come and sign up for your ticket early to guarantee your spot.  Once the juniors and seniors have their tickets, sophomores will be considered if there is space available.
