Virginia, MN- A Minnesota Education Fair for all high school students and their parents will be held at the Minnesota North College – Mesabi Range Virginia campus on September 20th 9:00 – 10:30 AM.

This fair provides students and parents an opportunity to explore a variety of options for continued education and technical training after high school.  Representatives from nearly 50 educational institutions will be available to answer questions and provide important information for post-high school planning.  Structured like a trade show, students and parents will be free to look at various displays and speak with admission professionals representing a wide variety of post-secondary options.

Save time at the college fair – register your information ahead of time!  You can register your personal information and create a personal barcode to be scanned at the fair by colleges that you are interested in.  Simply register at www.strivefair.com before you come to the MEF, print out the barcode, and bring it with you to the fair. 

Sponsored by the Minnesota Association for College Admission Counseling (MACAC), the same group that hosts the successful National College Fair held in Twin Cities each fall, this program offers an excellent chance for high school students to begin planning for life after graduation.  Admission is free.  Students should contact their high school counselor for further information.
