Students had lunchtime to make all the necessary contacts.

There were a few fun things in store for seniors at the fair. For the #BelieveInYourSelfie theme, seniors were invited to stop at the guidance table to get free t-shirts, and to take selfies at the fair with friends, representatives, and Rocky the Ram to post on #PHSCollegeCareer for chances to win some great prizes.

High school guidance counselor Brandon Crowder was very excited for the College Fair this year.

“We were excited about the opportunities the students had,” said Crowder.

The College Fair can help out a lot of students, especially those who do not have any idea about which college they would like to attend.

Senior Heather Brown discovered some interesting colleges to consider at the fair. “I like the University of Evansville because it has more opportunities,” said Brown.
