Glen Oaks to hold 2023 St. Joseph County College Fair next week

Over 500 prospective students, are expected to attend the 2023 St. Joseph County College Fair on Tuesday, October 17 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. on Ken Schuler Court, the college’s gymnasium.  

Schools in St. Joseph County will bus upper-level students to the event where they will be able to talk with admission representatives to learn about programs and student life at their affiliated institutions.

“This event provides students a great opportunity to explore the options at different colleges and universities,” Sarah Kohler, director of admissions at Glen Oaks, said. “It’s nice because you have so many admission representatives in one location, plus it is close to home.”

Both two- and four-year institutions will be represented at the fair, along with representatives from the military branches and technical schools.

“Whether you are a current student interested in transfer information, an adult wanting to start classes to expand your knowledge, a high school student (and or parent) wanting to learn about program options at colleges and universities from Michigan and Indiana, this event is a great opportunity for you to meet with college representatives all in one place at one time,” Kohler said.

The event is free and open to anyone in the community. To learn more, call the Office of Admissions at Glen Oaks at (269) 294-4253.
