TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (August 29, 2017) – For the fifth consecutive year, Tallahassee Community College hosted the annual Leon County Schools College Fair on August 28 in the Lifetime Sports Complex on TCC’s main campus.
Representatives from 65 colleges and universities provided program and admissions information to 355 prospective students and their families.
“I always encourage students to plan for life after high school,” said Teri Gimbel, LCS College Fair coordinator and Leon County Virtual School guidance counselor. “The College Fair allows students to meet directly from college representatives and helps them understand the importance of their grades and curriculum.”
Presenting schools included Florida State University, Florida A & M University, the University of Florida, the University of Miami, the University of Notre Dame, the University of Alabama, the University of Tennessee, Auburn University and many other outstanding institutions.
Gimbel said students seemed excited to receive good information on college opportunities.
“Some students in our community do not have the resources to visit college campuses,” Gimbel said. “Talking to them directly at the College Fair exposes them to opportunities they may not have known were available to them.”
