College Fair

Representatives from various colleges have set up VIRTUAL meetings SPECIFICALLY for Francis Lewis High School students and families!

Take advantage of the opportunities to learn about different collegiate institutions and programs, as well as developing personal connections at the different Colleges/Universities.

DEMONSTRATING INTEREST IN PROSPECTIVE COLLEGES can help with your admission/application process, as well as with possible scholarships and financial aid. Even for some of the colleges that you may not be as familiar with, learning about the different colleges and meeting representatives may be tremendous advantages during your FRESHMEN Application Process and/or for the future, if you ever decide to TRANSFER to a different college. So participate in as many sessions as possible!!

It’s always good to come to College Fairs prepared, and one of the best ways to do that is to prepare some questions to ask the college representatives so that you come across as an informed and serious applicant. To get you started, here are 20 great questions you could ask a college representative at a College Fair. Even if you don’t decide to ask some of these questions, you should still try to find their answers before you finalize your college list.
