College Fair

Middle and high school students preparing for college can meet face to face with more than 150 representatives of colleges from around the country at the annual Anne Arundel Community College Fair from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday, March 12, in the David S. Jenkins Gymnasium, 101 College Parkway in Arnold. The fair is free and gives students the opportunity to talk with admissions representatives about the best preparation for specific programs as well as the chance to learn about colleges they might not have heard about.

AACC representatives will be on hand to talk about degrees that transfer to both Maryland and out-of-state colleges, programs that lead to immediate job training, how to earn college credit while you are still in high school and other questions.
