Greater Rochester Getting-into-College Fair (Perinton)

November 3, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

We all know what traditional college fairs are like: huge venues hosting tons of colleges, universities and military services where students and families can gather information, brochures, and lots of first impressions. But is that all there is to the admissions process?

Obviously, determining where you want to go is important. Equally essential is learning how to get in!
We’re thrilled to announce the first Greater Rochester Getting-into-College Fair. How is this different from a conventional college fair? Instead of campus reps, you’ll meet amazing local experts with answers about every aspect of college admissions:

  • Independent college consultants
  • SAT & ACT test prep professionals
  • FAFSA and student loans specialists
  • College student success coaches
  • College savings and 529 advisors
  • NYS Excelsior and scholarship experts

The experts at this fair will offer guidance and insights for high school students of all ages along with parents and educators. Look forward to presentations on key admissions topics:

5:10 – New York State 529 Plans (Melissa Kapsiak)
5:30 – How FAFSA Gets You Money (Liane Crane)
5:50 – College Admissions for Athletes (Mike Stone)
6:10 – State of Test Optional Admissions in 2022-23 (Mike Bergin)
6:30 – Simplifying College Decisions (Edie Steele)
6:50 – Assessing Your Student’s College Readiness and Supporting Their Journey (Beth Howland)
7:10 – College Saving Strategies (John Skomski)
7:30 – Testing, Admissions, and Finance Q&A Panel

Join seasoned experts all in one place, all at the same time. Get your college questions answered, pick up stress-relieving information, and listen to valuable presentations on the most important topics you need to know about getting into college in the current admissions environment.

The event is free, and no registration is required. Find out more information at https://www.chariotlearning.com/getting-into-college-fair/.
