DURANT – High school seniors and juniors in the Texoma area are invited to attend the 2013 Texoma Area College Fair on Thursday, Oct. 24, at Southeastern Oklahoma State University.
This event will offer a great opportunity for students to begin planning for college and visit with more than 30 college and university representatives. Representatives will be in attendance from Oklahoma, Texas and other states to offer information and assist students in the college decision-making process.
The college fair will be from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. in the Bloomer Sullivan Arena on the Southeastern campus. The event is free and is open to students and parents. Last year, more than 400 students attended the college fair to learn about opportunities in higher education.
“The Texoma Area College Fair is an excellent opportunity for our local high school students to begin looking at options for higher education,’’ said Liz McCraw, Dean of Enrollment Management at Southeastern. “With colleges and universities from the state and region represented, students may explore areas of study, campus life and costs with a representative from each school without having to travel great distances.’’
In addition to browsing the college and university booths, students will also have the opportunity to attend informative workshops, designed to make the college transition a little easier. These workshops will be beneficial to parents and counselors attending as well. These workshops include:
9 a.m. – What You Really Need to Do to Prepare for College
9:30 a.m. – Native American Benefits
10 a.m. – College Fit: Finding the Right School for You
