College information fair at Webster Bank Arena

Students and parents can meet and talk to representatives of 150 colleges and universities at a comprehensive College Information Fair Tuesday, March 24, from 4 to 8 p.m., at the Webster Bank Arena at Harbor Yard, 600 Main Street, Bridgeport. All aspects of the college admission process will be covered at this free event.

A talk by special guest speaker Rob Franek: “How to choose, get into and receive financial aid” will provide expert help to lessen anxiety and make the college application process more efficient and successful. Franek is senior vice-president of The Princeton Review, author of college information books, with over 20 years of experience in higher education. He visits more than 50 colleges a year and has given hundreds of talks on college issues. He is considered the best source of reliable and up-to-date information about college by NBC, ABC and CBS television as well as The Chronicle of Higher Education, The Wall Street Journal and USA TODAY. He will answer all questions after his presentation, scheduled for 6:45 p.m.

“With college costs rising, and acceptance rates sinking, parents and students are experiencing enormous anxiety about the college admission process,” said Franken. “What matters most is finding the college that is the best choice for each individual student.” His talk will be a valuable guide to solve that challenge.

“We are very lucky to have Rob Franken add his expertise to this year’s Southern Connecticut College Fair. With booths from over 150 colleges and universities, this event is surely the area’s biggest college expo,” said organizer Andy Alcosser of Connoisseur Media, sponsor of the event. “Hundreds of people attended the fair last year and the excellent response proved that an opportunity such as this is of this is of great value and not-to-be-missed.”
