Hundreds of colleges represented at USM fair
SENIORS IN HIGH SCHOOL HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO EXPLORE THEIR NEXT STEPS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF SOUTHERN MAINE. HUNDREDS OF STUDENTS AND THEIR PARENTS PACKING IN TO THE U-S-M FIELD- HOUSE. 200 COLLEGES WERE ON HAND — SOME INTERNATIONAL — SHOWCASING WHAT THEY HAVE TO OFFER IN TERMS OF CLASSES, ACTIVITIES AND FINANCIAL AID. THE EVENT PUT ON BY THE NEW ENGLAND ASSOCIATION OF COLLEGE ADMISSION COUNSELORS. IF YOU DIDN’T GET TO STOP BY — HERE’S A TIP. “going to their high school guidance or counseling off is really a good step, but doing searches online, looking at maybe locations of where they might want to go to school: colleges in maine, colleges in new hampshire, colleges in california, it will come up with some good searches that way” ANOTHER IDEA IS TO GO ON TOURS OF COLLEGES áNOWá BEFORE YOU APPLY. SOME SCHOOLS HAVE APPLICATION DEADLINES AS EARLY AS NOVEMBER FIRST.
