Put it all together at the College Fair!
•STEP 1
What is a middle school College Fair?
A middle school College Fair is a
wonderful opportunity for students
to get an early start on the college
search. It can also can give students
a greater understanding of how to plan
their high school path with the
expectation of going to college.

You and your teachers have already
chosen a college or university to
represent at the college fair.

Take five minutes to discuss the
following questions with your
teacher and CCC Mentors.
• Why did you choose this
university?

the university?
