Gathering information, seniors and other students went to the Greater Indianapolis Northeast College Fair on September 19, 2012 to learn more about the colleges they are interested in. The event was sponsored by the Indiana Association for College Admission Counseling and was catered by Maggiano’s.“It was a great opportunity for students to browse all the colleges and get them prepared to decide what college they wanted to go to,” Counselor Lindsay Gross, in charge of the college fair,said

Students went into the auxiliary gym and strolled through the almost ninety vendors that were set up in alphabetical order.

About 90 colleges attended the fair, including Ball State University, Purdue University and Butler University.

Over  four hundred students and their families attended. Also, about twenty-five students volunteered to help out with several tasks such as setting up stations and carrying in the food from Maggiano’s.

“This year was a big improvement from last year, and I hope that I can keep it growing each year,” Gross said. More people, colleges, and families came.

Next year the fair will be held at HSE. For a full list of the colleges that are attending, check out the N the Red website.
