CHESTER and MIDLOTHIAN, Va. – Many factors must be considered when selecting a college. What do you want to major in? What is the tuition, and how will you pay it? Do you want to live at home or on campus? What are the class sizes? Does the institution offer classes at the times and in the formats you want? Does the college have options for working adults? You can get the answers to these questions and more on November 11, 2013 during a college fair hosted by John Tyler Community College’s Chester Counseling Center in cooperation with the Virginia Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers (VACRAO). The VACRAO College Fair will be held from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. in the Nicholas Student Center at John Tyler Community College’s Chester Campus, located at 13101 Jefferson Davis Highway. Representatives from nearly 100 colleges and universities will be on hand to provide information about their institutions. The VACRAO College Fair is free and open to high school students, their parents, and anyone interested in learning more about their higher education choices. For additional information about College Night, contact Tom Parrott at firstname.lastname@example.org.
