College Fair

EVENT TONIGHT

THURSDAY, OCTOBER 13TH

LSC is hosting their annual fall college fair. Come chat with reps from colleges and universities from all over Texas. This is a great opportunity to connect and ask your questions!

Helpful Tip: Not sure what questions to ask at a college fair? Here are some helpful ideas to get the conversations started.
  • What do students like most about your school?
  • What scholarship and financial aid programs does your college offer?
  • What academic programs are most popular at your college?
  • Does your school offer any study abroad or internship opportunities?
  • What is the average class size?
  • Is there something in particular that your admissions readers look for when evaluating applications?
  • What support services are offered at your school? (Ex: tutoring, counseling, career services, etc.)
  • How many clubs are available?
  • What is the average SAT/ACT score of the students admitted? Are you test optional?
  • Does your school offer in person and/or virtual campus visits?
  • Tell me about a specific major. (identify which major you're interested in)
  • Are freshmen required to live on campus?
  • What are the options available for intramural and club sports?
  • How involved are students in the local community?
  • What do students typically do on weekends?
  • Is it easy for students to find jobs on campus or in the community?
