Fall College Fair Series Connects Over 200 Colleges and Universities with Area Students

October 19, 2017

College Fairs are an essential component of CASDA’s activities. As an educational convener, we routinely connect educators to research, resources and best practices to support instructional growth and school improvement. Facilitating college fairs allows CASDA to provide students with access to information about and representatives from a variety of two and four year colleges, vocational training programs and branches of the military.


This fall, CASDA connected more than 200 college and university representatives with thousands of area students. In total, we facilitated thirteen college fairs in districts throughout the Capital Region and Hudson Valley. Evening fairs were hosted at Shaker, Kingston, Saratoga, Guilderland, Shenendehowa, Schalmont, Monroe-Woodbury and Bethlehem, while Green Tech High School, Albany and Schenectady held fairs in their gyms during the school day.


The CASDA Fall Regional College Fair held at Hudson Valley Community College hosted both morning and evening sessions. During the morning sessions, students were bused in from 14 area high schools including Amsterdam, Salem, Hoosick Falls and Taconic Hills, while the evening session was open to parents and students from all districts.


These free events give students and parents the opportunity to meet one-on-one with admission representatives from a wide range of national, public and private, two and four year colleges and universities; ask questions and pick up admission materials. The New York State Higher Education Services Corporation was also on hand to answer questions about student aid and application. 


Our final Fall College Fair will take place at Newburgh Free Academy on November 1 from 6:30 pm - 8 pm.
