Answers about colleges and careers available at Sept. 19 College Fair


High school juniors and seniors who want to attend college, but are unsure of exactly how to make that happen, are in luck.

Hundreds of representatives from colleges near and far are coming to Dallas on Wednesday, Sept. 19, to help you make your dreams of attending college come true. The free annual Districtwide College Fair and the Historically Black Colleges & Universities Showcase is set for 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Ellis Davis Field House, 9191 Polk St. and nearby D.A. Hulcy STEAM Middle School.

Whether you want to stay close to home or are determined to venture across the country, this is your chance to meet dozens of college representatives face-to-face to get information about options after high school graduation. And, of course, you’ll want to learn about how to cover the costs for college. There, too, the fair has you covered. There will be lots of information about financial aid.

Instead of college, let’s say you’ve got your heart set on joining the military or pursuing a skilled trade or other careers. The fair will also feature representatives to talk with you about deciding on a career, attending a trade school, and requirements to join the military. In short, there is no better place to start or complete your research than the Dallas ISD Districtwide College Fair.  To sign up for free admission and transportation, see your high school counselor today.

It’s important to note that parents are welcome to attend the event and encouraged to bring their own questions about financial aid, campus safety and student access to campus medical care.
