HARRISBURG, Pa. – More than 130 colleges and universities from up and down the East Coast will participate in the annual Pennsylvania Association for College Admission Counseling (PACAC) college fair on Wednesday, Oct. 2, from 6-8 p.m. in the Bruce E. Cooper Student Center at HACC’s Harrisburg Campus. Colleges and universities that will be in attendance include Bucknell University, Dickinson College, Lebanon Valley College, Michigan State University, Penn State Harrisburg and the University of Connecticut.
The free, public event returns for the 38th year to HACC, Central Pennsylvania's Community College, offering information to anyone contemplating the many options available in higher education.
The fair will feature two breakout seminars addressing topics of primary interest to the college-bound student. Both seminars will be offered from 6:15-6:45 p.m. and 7:15-7:45 p.m., giving attendees the opportunity to participate in both sessions. One is “Paying for College,” led by Carol Handlan of Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA). This session will address the financial aid application process, as well as help students and parents understand when to start the financial aid process.
Allen Norton, HACC admissions recruiter, will lead the second seminar, “Selecting the College That’s Right for You.” Norton will focus on topics such as how to identify a student’s area of interest and the programs and services that different colleges have to offer.
