Nearly 50 universities, colleges and technical schools from the tri-state area are participating in the second Fayette County College and Technical Fair, to be held Oct. 1 at Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus’s Community Center. The free event, from 9 to 11:30 a.m., is open to anyone interested in pursuing higher education.

Apryl Kadish, the Penn State Fayette admissions counselor who organized the event, said, “High school juniors and seniors and their parents will find this valuable event to be a wonderful opportunity to learn about the higher education opportunities in southwestern Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio, all in one place. They will be able to gather a lot of information about financing their education, whether they choose a university, college, technical school or the military. They also can obtain information about the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency, scholarships and much more.”

The event also is an opportunity for adults who want to pursue a college degree or bolster their skills for career advancement. “Adults and military veterans will find a wealth of information at the college fair, as sometimes they look to improve their careers or change career paths. High school students and adults alike might also discover new possibilities that they had not considered before,” Kadish said.

Penn State Fayette is hosting the college and technical fair to meet the needs of students across southwestern Pennsylvania. All the high schools in the region have been invited to attend. The public also is invited to attend.
