Illinois Regional College Fair

Donald C. Dodds Jr. Athletic Center (Gym)
Parkland College, Champaign, Illinois

Wednesday, September 20, 2017 • 6–8 p.m.

  • Visit with representatives from 90+ colleges and universities: In-state, Out-of-state, Public, Private, 2-year, 4-year.
  • Get answers to your questions: Local counselors and college financial aid representatives will be on hand to assist families.
  • Representatives of the Illinois Student Assistance Commission will answer questions on grants, loans, and scholarships.

To get the most from the Regional College Fair:

    Go to www.StriveFair.com to complete an online form. You will then receive (via text or email) a QR code containing all the info you entered. College reps can simply scan that barcode to get your information. No filling out of cards, and the information is all correct!
    • OR - Make/print labels with your name, address, phone, email address, high school and year or graduation, and area of interest (major). Use these to "fill out" the college info request cards. It's quick and readable.

    • Check the list of colleges attending, then look at the floor plan/map. Take a minute to plan your visit route.

    • Visit out-of-area schools first. Local schools are much easier to contact and visit. Don't wait in line to talk to a nearby school and miss talking to a rep from a school from a greater distance.

    • Pick up business cards of the reps you speak with. Jot a note on the back so you remember them if you wish to follow up with them later.

    • CLICK HERE to download a 2-page pdf handout from CollegeBoard listing great questions to ask college reps. And CLICK HERE to download the 1-page flyer promoting this event.
