NJ National College Fair Announcement

New Jersey National College Fair at the Meadowlands in Secaucus, NJ.
The fair will be held:

Wednesday, April 22, 2015
9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m.
Thursday, April 23, 2015
9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Student registration is not required, but strongly recommended at: http://www.gotomyncf.com. Students will complete the registration form with their information. Upon completion, they then will need to print out the bar code and bring the bar code to the college fair. It is not needed for entry, but as students talk with colleges they are interested in, the college representatives will scan their bar code. The college will then receive the information that the student provided and be able to communicate with them after the fair. It is an efficient way to maximize student’s time at the National College Fairs, instead of hand writing their information onto inquiry cards for each college they are interested in.
