The college night event offers students and their parents an opportunity to gather as much information as possible about college options. A college fair features a wide variety of college representatives who have traveled to one site in a region to meet students and their families. Our annual college night is held in October and we usually have at least 25 representatives in attendance.
High school students (especially juniors and seniors) should attend so that they can meet college representatives face to face, gain exposure to SouthArk as well as other institutions, and ask questions about financial aid. In doing so, students will be able to pick up brochures from various colleges and receive answers to individual questions from college representatives directly.
A financial aid seminar usually precedes the college fair to give students and parents useful information on how to pay for college and give information on financial aid opportunities.
