College fair features reps from over 40 colleges


By Mark Thompson

Special to The SUN

On Monday, Sept. 8, Pagosa Springs High School will be hosting a college fair in the high school commons from 6 to 7:30 p.m. There will be representatives from over 40 colleges, mainly from Colorado, with other states included.

This is a fantastic opportunity to meet the people face to face who can answer all your questions about programs, scholarships, entrance requirements and more.

This is a drop-in program: come for the whole time or stop by for 10 minutes.

“The 2014-2015 Colorado Collegiate Handbook” will be available to purchase for only $5 during the program. This book offers specific information about every college and university in Colorado and is a worthwhile investment.

This meeting is open to any high school student and their parents. Home-schooled and privately schooled students are welcome.

This year, the college representatives ask you to pre-register at After you register, you can print a barcode that can be scanned. This will save you lots of time filling out contact postcards; instead, the college representative can simply scan your barcode.
