On Tuesday, September 17, 2019, Pattonville High School held the 15th College Fair.  103 colleges and universities were represented and over 500 high school students from around the area attended, topping previous years’ attendance.

College and Career Counselor Mrs. Luraschi has organized the fair for the last four years. She explained that students can find out admission requirements, majors, how to visit, how to obtain scholarships, and the activities and sports available.

15 more colleges came this year, and the fair expanded from just Missouri and Midwestern colleges to more Northern and Southern colleges. Some of the new arrivals included  Florida Southern, University of Memphis, University of Tennessee, and University of Minnesota

Senior Shaniya Williams explained that the largest benefit of the college fair is that students can “get more experience and find more colleges that interest you.” She also liked finding out more about the student body and scholarship opportunities.

The College Fair and FAFSA Night both help students and parents onto the next educational step.
