Dawson Community College in Glendive, Montana will hold a MPSEOC Fair Wednesday, September 12, from 1 to 2:30pm. Interested students can visit with John Dershem-Bruce, DCC Admissions Counselor at the fair in Toepke Center Gym.
The Montana Post Secondary Educational Opportunities Council (MPSEOC) has conducted statewide college fairs since 1987. As many as 9,000 high school seniors will attend the fairs with their classmates, families and guidance counselors.
The college fairs give students an opportunity to contemplate their options after high school. Students can visit with representatives from in-state and out-of-state colleges and universities, technical and trade schools and military branches.
"The best thing a high school student can do with regard to their post-secondary plans is to check out all of their options. College fairs allow students to see what is out there and get them excited about finding the best fit for them," said Amy Leary, MPSEOC Executive Director. "Our fairs also help emphasize the quality and variety of colleges and universities available in Montana. With 25 higher education institutions in our state, students are bound to find something that works."
Another highlight of the college fairs is the College Cash Scholarship Program. In its tenth year, the College Cash Program gives away up to 10, $1000 scholarships (depending upon sponsor donations) to students across the state. The scholarships are awarded by a random drawing from the names of students who attend the college fairs.
Although the fairs are geared to high school students, they are open to the general public. Anyone who is interested in pursuing post-secondary education is encouraged to attend. Attendance is completely free!
