Grade 11 and 12 students and parents took part in the online College/University Fair organized by the Office of University Advising Sept. 22. 

Grade 11 students participated in the No-Name College Game at 2 p.m. prior to the main college fair event. At 3 p.m., participants from both grades met and discussed with representatives from many different universities across the globe, with parents joining at 4 p.m. 

Pete Stathopoulos (’23) said he enjoyed taking part in the event and that it was very helpful to learn more about the colleges that interest him. 

“It was a really nice way to get a brief background about some colleges that I’ve been researching into and trying to figure out where is best for me to go based on what I study,” he said. “It’s a shame you can’t do it in person, as previous years have, but I thought based on the limitations, it was great.”
