College Fair Guidelines
College Fairs provide high school students with the opportunity to get information and speak to representatives from many colleges and universities. Each year, the Office of Admission is invited to participate in numerous fairs and based upon location, student interest, applicant history, and additional factors, the Office selects which college fairs are important to attend. When a member of the Admission staff is unable to attend these fairs, we rely on our Alumni Ambassadors to cover fairs in various areas across the country.
Before the College Fair
1) You will be mailed a packet of information prior to the college fair you are scheduled to attend that will include:
Inquiry Cards (postcards that prospective students complete with address, high school, and intended major of study information)*
Road Piece Brochures (includes snapshots of information about Providence College including a list of majors and minors)
Class of 2016 and Student Body Profile Sheets
Course Catalog (for your reference, and if students want to look through it)
Providence College Banner (to display on college fair table)*
College Fair Evaluation Form*
Return Address Information and Envelope
*Items should be mailed to the office in the enclosed envelope ASAP
2) Please familiarize yourself with the information on the Providence College website, in the "Road Piece" Brochures, and on the Class of 2016 and Student Body Profile.
3) Important: In the event of an emergency on the day of the fair and you are unable to attend the College Fair, please call the high school that is sponsoring the fair to let them know that you will not be there.
Day of the College Fair
Business attire is appropriate for a college fair.
Please plan to arrive approximately a half hour before the fair is scheduled to begin to find and set up your table.
Set up your table with the PC banner and the informational materials that we have provided for you.
Some fairs will provide dinner or light refreshments prior to the fair for college representatives. We will give this information to you as it becomes available to our office.
