High school students and their parents from throughout Northeast Pennsylvania are invited to attend The Pennsylvania Association for College Admission Counseling (PACAC) 10th Annual Northeast Regional College Fair on Monday, April 30 at the Woodlands Inn and Resort. This event is free and open to the public.

Representatives from colleges and universities from at least 19 states throughout the eastern United States and parts of the Midwest, South and West are expected to attend. The fair will be open from 9 a.m. to noon and from 6 to 8 p.m. College admissions counselors will be available during the day and in the evening, and financial aid officers will be available to answer questions.

In addition, parents and students are invited to attend two evening workshops. The first, titled “The Financial Aid Process,” will be given at 5:30 p.m. and will provide an overview of the financial aid process. The second, titled “The No-Stress College Search,” will be presented at 6 p.m. and will outline the college search process. Both sessions will be held in the seminar room of the Woodlands (check the front lobby for locations). Parents and their children are encouraged to attend the evening college fair sessions together.

Students are encouraged to bring pre-printed labels with their names, addresses, intended major, year of graduation and high school name to reduce time spent in filling out forms.
