     Every year, students graduate high school into a world of college and careers. However, finding the right postsecondary situation can be rather difficult. This is where college fairs come to light. Showing each student what colleges are available and how they may be right for them. Recently, Wayne County High School set up a trip to Somerset Community College (SCC) to experience a college fair and the chance to find their perfect match. The 125 local students who participated got to speak with college representatives and obtain relevant information along with the feel of the school.  There were approximately 25 private and state colleges represented at the fair, so students had to work quickly to visit with representatives at each booth. 

     After the fair, the students were invited to tour the college campus. This gave students time to get used to the community college they may attend for a few years before venturing out to bigger campuses. The students toured several buildings, taking in just a fraction that SCC offers. Some students that are attending SCC even gave examples of what they learned and the creations they have made. Near the end of the journey, students sat down and enjoyed pizza, cookies, chips, and a drink. 

     At the end of the day, students were excited to dive through the pamphlets and papers they got from there #1 colleges, and even a few second options. This opportunity gave seniors, and some under-classmen, the push they needed to start the adventure of a higher education.
