INDIANAPOLIS - Hundreds of students and families setting their sights on higher education geared up Tuesday to attend the National Association for College Admission Counseling College Fair at the Indiana Convention Center.
Event organizers said they hope to help students and their parents navigate through the college admissions process and learn about financial aid and scholarships.
Admission officials from more than 100 national and international colleges and universities will be on hand to meet one-on-one with students.
"You can go to an individual campus and do that visit, but to get so many people from across the country and from international schools at one time is a great opportunity for our students and families," said Mike Jaskoski, Cathedral High School director of guidance.
Aimee Rust-Scheuermann is the director of admissions at Butler University and said the college fair is convenient for students who may be interested in colleges outside of Indiana.
"The students get a chance to talk to their admission representatives about financial aid and about admission requirements. It's a fantastic opportunity," Rust-Scheuermann said.
Event organizers said the fair will be held in two sessions Tuesday from 9 a.m. to noon, and from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
