    NACAC Virtual College Fair: Southeastern US Fair

    Click Here to see the schedule of Spring 2021 NACAC virtual events! Different colleges will share information about their programs, majors, financial aid, and more on each fair date. Additional colleges will be added throughout the spring. Four of these events are smaller Focus Fairs and are especially for students with special interests or residing in specific regions: STEM (Mar. 7), Performing & Visual Arts (Mar. 16), Western US (Apr. 10), Southeastern US (Apr. 20).COVID-19 has shut down many opportunities students previously had for visiting, learning about, and connecting with colleges. NACAC aims to bridge that gap through these special one-day events.
    At each virtual fair, students attend college presentations, learn about their options, ask questions, and demonstrate interest... all without leaving home!
