Athens, Ga. – The University of Georgia will host the annual PROBE College Fair on Sept. 12 from 6-8:30 p.m. at The Classic Center in downtown Athens. High school juniors and seniors from the surrounding area will have the opportunity to gain valuable information about 91 southeastern colleges and universities.

High school students from Barrow, Jackson, Elbert, Clarke, Greene, Madison, Oglethorpe, Walton and Oconee counties are expected to attend the fair.

Georgia Student Finance Commission representatives also will be at the PROBE fair to provide details about the HOPE scholarship and the new Web site, designed to help Georgia high school students plan and pay for a college education.
