Students from Fort Wayne Community Schools, East Allen County Schools and Concordia Lutheran High School will have the opportunity to consider where they are heading after graduation during the Northeast Indiana College Fair on Tuesday, March 7, at the Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW) Fieldhouse.

Nearly 100 universities and military units from in and around Indiana – both public and private – will have information available at the fair on programs and services offered. To see a list of which schools and organizations will be represented at the fair, visit Representatives also will be available to talk with students about what they are looking for in students and what the school can provide academically, socially and financially.

New this year is the ability for students to register in advance at Registering allows students to provide their information one time instead of dozens of times on prospect cards at each college table. Students attending will have a printed barcode that representatives can scan, which eliminates errors that come from handwriting names and addresses and gives the students more time to talk to representatives without spending time filling out information cards.

Students from East Allen County Schools and Concordia Lutheran High School will attend the fair from 8:30-10:30 a.m. Students from Fort Wayne Community Schools will attend from 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

The fair is sponsored by: Fort Wayne Community Schools, East Allen County Schools, Concordia Lutheran High School and IPFW.
