University to host regional college fair

UGA will host the annual Georgia Probe College Fair Aug. 31 from 6-8 p.m. at the Classic Center. The event will bring representatives from more than 100 colleges and universities from across the Southeast to connect with high school juniors and seniors from the surrounding area.

Coordinated by UGA’s Office of Admissions, the Georgia Probe College Fair is an opportunity for parents, students and those interested in higher education in Athens-Clarke County and the surrounding counties to obtain information about colleges without the burden of extensive travel and lodging.

The fair will allow students and parents to meet one-on-one with college administrators, recruiters and counselors in one convenient location. Admissions counselors will be available to answer questions on topics such as admissions criteria, application deadlines, financial aid, SAT and ACT requirements and campus life.

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