The 30th annual Danbury College and Vocational Fair takes place Monday at the Danbury Mall. Students from approximately 70 high schools have been invited to attend. Adults interested in further training are also being urged to attend. Over 225 schools will be represented. Schools from as far away as Florida, Texas and California are expected to speak to the diverse student population and provide information about their schools. The Armed Services, trade schools, business schools and the job service will also be at the fair.
5,000 students and their parents are expected to visit the college and vocational fair. Chairwoman Valerie DeRubertis says this is one of the largest and most successful college fairs in the country.
Students and adults can talk with school representatives about majors, costs, entrance requirements, student life, sports and scholarship information among other topics. Tonight, Danbury High School counselors, including Spanish speaking counselors will be in the upper and lower level center courts to help fair attendees.
The Danbury School District website shows the list of institutions attending, and a map of where their booths will be located. There are also tips on what to ask college representatives and financial aid information on the Danbury site.
