College Corner: Upcoming college fairs 2023

Students gather in the PC gym for the Christian College Fair, Oct. 8.

2023 College fair opportunities for FCS students

As the school year begins so does the college planning process for seniors. College searching, letters of recommendations, scholarships, application workshops, are only some of the few items out of many that seniors have to balance as they decide which universities they plan to apply to after high school. 

College fairs are a great opportunity for students to connect with a variety of college representatives and ambassadors regarding the school’s programs and the opportunities they offer for prospective students. For students at Fresno Christian High School, they have three college fairs this fall they are able to take advantage of and attend with their parents which is highly recommended. Below are three upcoming events to check out. 

No. 1

The first college fair is the Fresno Area College Night which is held on Wednesday, September 13, from 6pm-8pm. It’ll be located in Downtown Fresno at the Fresno Convention Center Exhibit Hall. The address of this location is 848 M Street, Fresno, California 93721.

Students attending the Fresno Area College Night will find that all the UCs, CSUs, private schools, vocational programs, community colleges, and so much more will be available for students to receive information and resources.

Tryphena Gunawan learns more about potential colleges during a local college fair.

The last college fair for Fresno Christian students to attend is the FCS Lunch College/Career fair that is hosted on our campus. It’ll be during lunch in the courtyard on Tuesday, October 3rd. This fair will consist of community colleges, Fresno Pacific, Grand Canyon University, members of the military, Hume Lake’s Joshua program, and so much more. 

It’s important to host events on campus for students who are not able to attend off campus college fairs but are still highly interested to learn about the many post high school options. This lunch fair is open to high school and middle school students since it is never too early to look into colleges.

Great questions to ask of potential schools

  • What makes your school unique?
  • What are the out of state fees?
  • What programs are your school known for?
  • What suggestions do you have for the enrollment process
