Students and parents are invited and encouraged to attend the Southern Nevada College fair on Thursday, Oct. 17, from 6-8 p.m. in the quad. All grades are encouraged to attend in order to obtain more information about colleges.

“I am going to the college fair to learn more about different schools around the country,” junior Brooke Bird said. “I have been receiving many emails from different colleges, and I want to narrow down my options.”

The fair will also be held at Faith Lutheran High School on Wednesday, Oct. 16 from 6-8 p.m. for those who are unable to attend. Over 140 colleges will appear at both fairs, including top universities such as: Harvard University, Stanford University, University of California, Irvine and New York University. 

“I am looking forward to seeing Harvard University at the college fair,” junior Nicole Bratu said. “I want to learn more about the programs they have to offer.”

“This college fair will give me an opportunity to learn more about the different schools and hopefully scholarships, so I won’t be drowning in student loans,” sophomore Brady Steele said. “I think that this is a good chance for students and parents to learn more about the next step after high school.”
