The Grauer School's Annual College Fair
Our annual Grauer School College Fair was held on Thursday, October 17. Many students in all grades attended to pick up literature and learn more about the colleges and universities that attended the fair. This is great exposure in a relaxed environment for our students to start to show demonstrated interest with individual colleges and the representatives (many of which present a student’s file directly to the admissions committee).
The following schools were in attendance: University of Alabama, Seton Hall University, Ohio State University, High Point University, University of Arizona, University of Houston, American University of Rome, Northland College, University of Tennessee, Colorado State University, Louisiana State University, Northern Arizona University, and Southern Utah University.
Special thanks to Shelley Boniwell in our Counseling office for presenting this great event for our students and families!
