College fair to be held in Warren on Thursday

Posted at 3:27 PM, Sep 22, 2015

College-bound students and their families are being encouraged to attend the 7th Annual College Fair on Thursday, September 24 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Warren City Hall.

Representatives from colleges and universities will be on-hand to provide information to students and parents. 

Some of the colleges and universities represented are from out-of-state.

Warren Mayor Jim Fouts' Student Advisory Committee came up with the idea to host the college fair as a way for students to learn about different colleges and universities, and what they have to offer.

"The fair is a time-saver for students and their parents or guardians to learn about curricula, financial aid and costs related to attending college,” said Mayor Fouts.

Last year, over 1,000 people attended the college fair.
