UCLA Representative speaking to WCUSD students about college admissions
West Covina Unified hosts free college fair

 

The West Covina Unified School District is hosting its fourth annual college fair Sept. 26 from 5:00 - 8:00 p.m. at Edgewood Schools located at 1625 W. Durness St. in the city of West Covina.

 

Approximately 40 representatives from the most prestigious colleges will be in attendance. Representatives will be able to answer questions about programs, campus activities, housing, support services and admission requirements.

 

Personalized breakout sessions according to grade levels will also be available for families. The district encourages students of all grade levels to attend the fair and take advantage of the resources.

 

“It’s important for students in the earlier grade levels to be exposed to college before they transition to high school,” said Margaret Llamas, college and career coordinator. “We want to show them the endless amount of college and career paths available. For high school students, this event usually helps them kick-start their college research process.”

 

Food trucks will be available for dinner starting at 5:00 p.m. The college fair officially opens at 6 p.m.

 

Elementary and middle school breakout sessions start at 5:30 p.m. in the cafeteria. These breakout sessions include strategies to prepare K-6 families for college readiness and success.

 

High school breakout sessions start at 5:30 p.m. and will include the following:

  • How to be College Ready and Afford It 
    Location: Media Center
    • Session 1: 5:30 - 6:00 p.m.
