Despite the increasing importance of higher education, students who are academically qualified for college still face numerous barriers to college enrollment. These barriers range from insufficient financial aid to mixed messages about academic preparation, poor understanding of admission and financial aid application processes, and limited community encouragement. (BY RYAN D. HAHN AND DEREK PRICE, PH.D.)


The encouragED College Fair Night events offer a venue for high school students/parents to meet with colleges/universities to share information and answer questions about their institutions. In addition to the open-fair setting, encouragED College Fair Night features workshops related to the college admissions process. We know that college fairs can be overwhelming, this is why students will be guided throughout the process. The encouragED College Fair Night will draw students and parents from the West Florida, Alabama and Mississippi Gulf Coast regions by partnering with local media outlets and local high schools to advocate this fun and exciting event. Local student government associations will serve as ambassadors and will assist in promoting encouragED College Fair Night to their student body.

Our college fair and night is fun and exciting! There will be prizes raffled throughout the night and there will also be an entertainment stage!
