2024 College Fairs in Westchester

It can be jarring to think about sending your child to child. There is so much to do and consider. From costs to requirements to locations, there are several aspects of college life that comes into play.

Planning is key when deciding on what college your teen will attend. One of the best ways to do so is by attending a local college fair. Here, you and your child can meet with representatives from various colleges and universities to learn more about their programming and offerings. This includes understanding application requirements, campus life, majors offered, and more. They are also a great way to ask questions and have a one-stop shop to meet everyone in one place. Below, we are sharing a range of local college fairs happening this year in Westchester – and beyond.
