OSWEGO, NY – Hundreds of students and parents filled the Marano Campus Center concourse at SUNY Oswego April 27 to meet with 60 college representatives at the only evening college fair offered in Oswego County.
The Oswego County Counselors Association in conjunction with SUNY Oswego offered this event to allow families in Oswego County the opportunity to gain information first-hand from colleges of interest.
This college fair debuted last spring and as a result of that success, was planned again for this past April.
In addition to the college fair, participants could also attend one of two brief information sessions regarding navigating through the college search and application process.
According to Lisa Roman, Oswego High School counselor and president of the Oswego County Counselors Association, the feedback from participants and college representatives, was that the event was a huge benefit for Oswego County families.
The Oswego County Counselors Association is a professional organization comprised of school counselors in every school district in Oswego County.
These counselors meet monthly to collaborate and discuss issues affecting students and families in Oswego County.
In addition, the organization also organizes two college fairs, including this spring fair at SUNY Oswego, and another one in the fall that has been traditionally held at the Cayuga Community College Fulton campus.
OsCCA also offers scholarships to high school seniors from every school in Oswego County.
