Students are asked to bring several copies of their transcripts, test scores, resumes, and letters of recommendation so that colleges and universities can seriously discuss their qualifications and make offers at the fair.
 
Students can pre-register for the fair at www.infinitescholar.org and qualify to win a $1,000 scholarship. Click here for an informational flyer.

Calling all old tuxedos & long black dresses
