PROBE COLLEGE FAIRS HELP STUDENTS WITH IMPORTANT DECISIONS

Approximately 45,000 Georgia high school students and their parents will explore the options of post-secondary education this fall at one of the many PROBE College Fairs, including the PROBE Fair to be held at Griffin High School on Thursday, September 25, 2014 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. in the Commons.

PROBE is the organized college fair tour that attracts representatives from non-profit educational institutions to shopping malls, civic centers, and high schools through the state of Georgia.

The typical PROBE FAIR consists of two to three hours of browsing time for students and parents.  Topics such as financial aid, housing, programs of study, admission’s requirements, scholarships and campus life are discussed with the representatives.

This year, students can receive a bar code that can be easily scanned by colleges they visit at the fair. This procedure will save students time from having to handwrite information cards. www.gotocollegefairs.com.

Last year, more than 250 private and public colleges and universities, technical institutes, and ROTC participated in PROBE.

For more information, contact Portia Lacy, GHS Counselor, at 770-229-3752 or Bill Smith, Executive Director of PROBE, at 404-355-8586.
