Since we are not able to have our annual College & More Fair, we are sharing resources from our guests. More will be added as colleges and other organizations augment their offerings.
Handouts from grade-level packets
When students arrive at College & More in person, they receive a packet of materials relevant for their current and their next school year. 9th grade students receive both 9th and 10th grade material and so on.

Visit Campuses Virtually
If you were planning on visiting college campuses this spring, you will most likely have to cancel. Colleges nationwide are canceling admitted student and visitor events.
However, many colleges have Upcoming College Admission Events that may include a virtual visit or a webinar or options for videoconferencing. If the colleges that interest you are not on this list, check the website or reach out to the admissions office.
Also do the following:
- look for campus newspapers online and read back issues to see what students are talking about during normal times
- check out social media--both official and student-run
Individual Campus Resources
A couple of colleges have sent us links, but nearly every college will have options. Poke around their websites and contact admissions representatives with questions.
