Representatives of more than 60 colleges and universities will take part in a college fair on Oct. 25 at the Crown Expo Center, according to a news release from Methodist University.
Cumberland County Schools has partnered with the Carolinas Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers to host the college fair.
The school district will bus some students to the expo center from 9 a.m. to 12:15 p.m., the news release said. Parents and students can attend from 5:30 to 7 p.m.
The college fair is open to students of all ages, not just high school students, according to the release. Admission is free.

Elizabeth Hunter, associate director of admissions at Methodist University and a member of the Educational Opportunities Committee of the registrars association, said the fair will offer access to information about dozens of universities across the country.
“Being a part of both Methodist University and CACRAO has afforded me the opportunity to work with Cumberland County high school counselors, and I know I speak for the entire Methodist admissions team — and those of other schools — when I say we are eager for the opportunity to engage with the students of Cumberland County,” Hunter said in the news release.
The college fair will include representatives of universities in the Carolinas, Virginia, Alabama, Mississippi, and elsewhere. A representative of the College Foundation of North Carolina will also be available with information about financial aid and scholarships, the release said.
More information is available from school counselors. Transfer, home-school or nontraditional students can reach Hunter at email@example.com.
