This college fair is one in a series of Illinois Association for College Admission Counseling (IACAC) regional college fairs held throughout the state of Illinois to inform students about educational options after high school. Students will have the opportunity to gather information, ask questions, and meet with public and private, in-state and out-of-state colleges and universities, community colleges, military, and technical schools. With 60 to 70 representatives expected to attend, students in southern Illinois have the opportunity to meet with a wide array of institutions.
