Wyandanch Memorial High School’s guidance department hosted its annual college fair that welcomed more than 75 representatives from colleges, universities, trade schools and branches of the U.S. Military to share information with scholars on educational opportunities after graduation.
With nearly 230 juniors and seniors in attendance, scholars were able to gather information on potential schools and speak to representatives about the application process, acceptance criteria, tuitions and scholarship opportunities.
“Offering our scholars the opportunity to speak with so many different college representatives is the best way for them to explore their options after high school,” said Tiffany Kee, lead school counselor. “Our goal is to provide our scholars with as many pathways to success as possible and the mini college fair is one of the best ways to do that.”
Following the college fair students gathered in the high school auditorium for a financial aid seminar presented by Suffolk County Community College. The seminar educated scholars on the different financial options available to them including FAFSA, scholarships and more.
