Edison to host college fair

PIQUA — To help students and parents through the college selection process, Edison State Community College will be hosting their annual College Fair on Wednesday, Oct. 25, from 12:30 to 2 p.m. in the Charger Gymnasium at the Piqua Campus.

Finding the right college and career path can be an overwhelming task. Options including size, location, and cost are all elements that can have a major impact on a student’s decision of where they will attend college and how successful they will be.

More than 65 colleges and universities from Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky will be at Edison State to speak with students, parents, and guidance counselors about opportunities in higher education. Advisors and representatives will be able to address questions regarding courses, tuition, job placement rates for majors, accreditation, the transfer process, and more.

“It’s always wonderful to connect students to universities that will help them continue on their career pathway,” said Christina Raterman, Enrollment Manager at Edison State.

Some of the highlighted schools attending this year’s college fair will be Bowling Green State University, University of Cincinnati, University of Dayton, Miami University, University of Kentucky, The Ohio State University, University of Toledo, and Wright State University.

Edison State Community College will also be in attendance to highlight more than 35 associate degrees and one-year certificate programs, designed to help students transfer to four-year colleges and universities or help launch a professional career.

“Credits from Edison State transfer to both public and private colleges nationwide,” added Raterman. “We want students, both current Edison State and local high school, to get their questions answered and discover more about the many transfer opportunities from Edison State.”

“If anyone cannot attend the fair, they’re always welcome to learn more about Edison State’s career and transfer programs by scheduling a campus visit.”
