30 universities make their way to the Eastern Shore for annual college fair

SALISBURY, Md. – At James M. Bennett High School students got the opportunity to make some major connections with colleges from all across the country.  Close to 30 colleges made their way to Salisbury Tuesday for the school’s annual college fair. Event organizers tell us the fair is a way for students to prepare for their future education, and show them what schools are looking for as they begin the application process. They add that by getting their students involved with the college process sooner rather than later they give them a better opportunity to be successful.

“We wanted so then that students can set goals for themselves, they can plan accordingly when they’re doing their scheduling with their middle school and high school guidance counselors and it also gives them something to work towards so we’re really happy to have them get the opportunity to have these conversations,” said family engagement specialist Beth Sheller.

School officials tell us they hold this event once a year for students. But don’t worry if you missed out. They tell us school counselors are always available to help you prepare for the college experience.
