More than 1,000 high school students piled off their school buses and into the Sheraton Fairplex Conference Center on Wednesday, March 6 for the So Cal College Fair.
Once inside, students were free to explore the wide variety of career opportunities available to them. Universities from across the nation, UCs and a number of professional, trade, tech and culinary schools were represented.
Students could talk to college representatives about their programs and financial aid, ask questions about campus life and be exposed to other opportunities they might not have considered before. After perusing through the exposition, students gathered in the conference center ballrooms for seminars and workshops centered on SAT prep, athletic recruitment, financial aid and a number of other topics.
Students also had the opportunity to win scholarships in the amounts of $1,000, $500 and $300. The So Cal College Fair was hosted by The Learning Centers at Fairplex, whose programs were also represented.
