2023 SERF College & Gap Year Fair

The Annual SERF College & Gap Year Fair - 15 years strong - encourages and supports high school students from all backgrounds to explore education after graduation. High school students and their families, including those in all of our neighboring communities, are invited to join us for FREE seminars and workshops with experienced college counselors, and for live conversations with college admissions and gap year representatives.

Getting Prepared

Read from some of our best voices on how to make the most of your College Fair experience:

Tips from Fair Pros

  • Find out which colleges and gap year programs will be at the fair and write down the ones you want to know more about.
  • Make a list of questions that can’t be answered by searching each college’s or gap year program’s websites. “What kind of students are you looking for?” and “What is the atmosphere like on campus and in the surrounding community?” are examples.
  • Introduce yourself with eye contact.
  • Jot down general impressions and details. These notes may come in handy when you write your essay or visit a school.
  • Represent yourself and your school with pride. Representatives want to see students excited about their education and plans for the future.
  • Check out other booths when you’re done. You may stumble upon a great college or program you hadn’t considered.
  • Take your time – see everything you want to see.
