To increase student awareness of the possibilities that exist after graduation, more than 60 college and university representatives are traveling to Broken Arrow High School for the annual College Fair taking place in the grand lobby on Monday, Sept. 24 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
“The BAHS College Fair is the ideal opportunity to be exposed to a wide variety of colleges and universities,” said Kristin Carr, Lead College and Career Counselor at Broken Arrow High School. “Knowledge about the numerous options available for post-secondary educational options aids students in making the best choice for their future.”
Higher education schools from across the country will offer free advice and academic guidance to Broken Arrow students and parents of any grade. These schools include The University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State University, Oklahoma City University, Princeton University, West Point, The University of Arkansas, Tulsa Community College, The University of Tulsa and many others.
This year, Oklahoma college fairs are automated, so in order for students to have more time to speak with college representatives, they can print a bar code with personal contact information embedded. The colleges will scan the bar code at the college fair and send additional information at a later date. While this is optional, it saves parents and students time.
