University of Georgia to host regional college fair

Athens, Ga. – The University of Georgia will host the Georgia Probe College Fair Sept. 18 from 6-8:30 p.m. at the Classic Center in downtown Athens. The annual college fair welcomes representatives from more than 100 colleges and universities across the Southeast to connect with high school juniors and seniors from the surrounding area.

Coordinated by the UGA Office of Admissions, the Georgia Probe College Fair provides parents, students and those interested in higher education an opportunity to obtain detailed information about specific colleges without the burden of extensive travel and lodging. The Probe Fair will allow participants to meet one-on-one with college administrators, recruiters and counselors in one convenient location. Admissions counselors will be available to answer questions on such topics as admissions criteria; application deadlines; financial aid; SAT, ACT and NCAA requirements; and campus life.

Students and parents from more than 30 public and private high schools from the surrounding areas, including Barrow, Clarke, Elbert, Greene, Jackson, Madison, Monroe, Oconee, Oglethorpe and Walton counties, have been invited to attend.

The Classic Center is located at 300 North Thomas Street. Parking will be available at the Classic Center deck during the event. For directions, see
