Tusculum College will offer high school students and their parents the opportunity to explore higher education options during the Greeneville-Greene County College Fair on Wednesday, Sept. 2.
For the second year, the annual event will be held in two sessions. A morning session, primarily for visiting high school students, will be 9 to 11 a.m. An evening session will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. to allow parents as well as students to discover the many different options available to high school graduates to continue their education. The event will take place in the Pioneer Arena, and there is no admission charge.
Participating in the event will be a wide variety of colleges and universities as well as vocational schools. Each institution has a display providing information about its academic programs. Most also have representatives on hand to answer specific questions about programs or the school.
In 2008, about 40 colleges, universities, technical schools and the military had displays at the College Fair, and the participants included schools from Georgia, Kentucky, North Carolina, Virginia and across the State of Tennessee. A similar number and range of exhibitors are expected for this year’s event.
The College Fair, coordinated by the Tusculum College Office of Admission, has grown in size in recent years, and the department is appreciative of the opportunity to bring this service to area students and their families.
The event is represented on the official Tennessee Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers calendar.
