  • Be Prepared

    Here are some tips to help you make the most out of your Fair experience:

    Time to explore college and career options!  
    Consider printing self-stick labels with your name, address, contact information (phone, cell, email address), and graduation date to stick on college information cards.  Bring a notepad and pen to keep track of important information.

    Interested in participating in a student exchange program? 
    Many of the schools attending are WUE eligible.  WUE (pronounced “woo-wee”) is the Western Undergraduate Exchange, a program of the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE). Through WUE, students in western states may enroll in more than 140 two-year and four-year college institutions at a reduced tuition level: 150 percent of the institution's regular resident tuition.   WICHE member states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, Wyoming.  For more information, visit the WUE website at www.wiche.edu/wue

    Prepare a few questions ahead of time. 
    For parents, remember the questions your student has may be totally different from questions you may have; both are important.  Explore with your student, not for them.  For students, remember you will be living there, not just attending school.  For all attendees, prepare, ask questions, and evaluate if and how a school can meet your needs.

    Examples of questions are:

    •What are the employment opportunities on or off campus?
    •How are housing assignments made?  Are the residence halls co-ed?
    •What kind of social activities are available on campus?
    •How do you award student aid?
    •Do they offer your intended major?
    •What are the admission requirements?
    •What if I decide to transfer schools?
    •What kind of “services” are available on campus? (i.e. Career Center, Health Center, Computer labs, Shuttles, Fitness Center)
