Person High School held the annual Carolinas Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Office (CACRAO) college fair on Sept. 20 in the auxiliary gym.
The fair provides seniors and juniors the opportunity to stop at different booths and speak with college representatives and get information about the colleges that interest them.
There were a total of 68 colleges from along the east coast. Colleges from North Carolina, Virginia, West Virginia, Georgia, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island were represented.
Representatives from each school handed out informational pamphlets and brochures to help students understand what their universities offer as well as their undergraduate expectations.
Kelly Woody, Gaining Early Awareness and Readiness for Undergraduate Programs (GEAR UP) coordinator, scheduled the CACRAO college fair.
“This is the perfect opportunity for students to talk to admissions officers and ask specific questions about undergraduate programs as well as leave a good impression. Students can find good schools that are the right fit for them,” said Woody.
Rock staff member, Kason Leake said, “The college fair was excellent. My fellow Rock staff member, Hunter Williams, and I were surprised to see so many great schools represented. It was an opportunity to visit the booths for colleges we are most interested in.”
The fair lasted from 10 to 11:30 a.m.
Roxboro Community School seniors were also invited to attend the college fair.
