With the college fair season already underway, two events are on the radar for students in the Fresno/Clovis area. The Buchanan and FC campuses will host college fairs to encourage students to narrow their collegiate options, Sept. 23.

While the FC college fair started at lunch in the Ground Zero area, the Buchanan college fair is available after school hours for students who have further interest in any of the booths available on campus.

The National Christian College Fair will occur from 6-8 p.m., featuring almost 30 colleges. The event will be in the Multipurpose Room at 1560 N. Minnewawa Ave in Clovis.

The college fairs on both campuses offer students the opportunity to plan ahead for their post secondary school choices. Annually, FC has hosted a college fair that all students attend. This year’s event will be Sept. 24.

This event gives students a variety of options from a wide array of different colleges. This is a great opportunity for juniors and seniors to explore schools throughout CA and the western U.S., including technology schools.

Many of the schools will provide information on scholarships and admission tips with applications. No matter a students’ grade level, this event is meant to move student choices along, promoting college career choices in high school.

Academic Adviser Michelle Warkentin, who organizes FC’s college fair, shared how she believes this will help students make a wise decisions.

“Although students may be tempted to skip out on the fair, I would definitely recommend that they attend our event in addition to Buchanan’s Christian college fair,” Warkentin said. “There will be some colleges at Buchanan that are not at our event. It is also a good idea to get as much exposure as possible; and the chance to bring your parents to the Buchanan event may help students weigh out their options.”

Senior Gabriela Siqueiros is attending college fair on the FC campus. Even though she does not know which school she would like to attend, Siqueiros would like to see the different schools that are available so she can be prepared for the application process later in the year.

“I will be going because it is my last year in high school, and I need to start looking at colleges,” Siqueiros said. “I don’t know what to choose yet so the more options I have, and the more I learn about each school, the more I can be well prepared to apply.”

    This picture really extenuates how large Coach T is. He is seriously like a bear and has hands that are larger than life itself.
