The College Planning Center of Rhode Island has teamed up with the Pawtucket Red Sox for the 7th year in a row to host a college fair at McCoy Stadium on September 21, 2016 from 6pm - 8pm. At the fair, students will have the opportunity to speak with college representatives and learn about the academic culture of individual colleges. Over 100 colleges from all across the Northeast are expected to attend.

All high school students - even students that aren't sure if college is right for them - are encouraged to attend. A lot is at stake for students these days as studies have shown college graduates earn higher salaries and experience lower unemployment rates than those without a college degree. Choosing a college wisely can mean the difference between graduating and dropping out, so students need to do their homework before sending out applications.

Students should be open-minded as they start their college search and learn as much as possible about all types of colleges so they are making informed decisions about where to apply. It's important for students to identify schools that are good matches both academically and financially, so students should be sure to apply for all the free financial aid they can and carefully compare school financial aid policies so they do not graduate with too much debt.

Admission to the college fair is free and plenty of free parking is available. The event will take place indoors, rain or shine. The College Planning Center recommends students come prepared with a list of questions to ask the schools.
