October 1, 2008 - Grand Rapids, Michigan (October 1, 2008) – The college chase is on! Aquinas College will host more than 70 colleges, universities and military branches nationwide on October 1. High school students and parents can attend the college fair to ask questions about these institutions and receive printed materials to take with them. In addition, a college financial aid expert will be on hand to address any questions about financing college education.

This free event will be held in the Aquinas College Fieldhouse at 1580 East Fulton, Grand Rapids from 6:30 to 8 p.m. This will be the only college fair for high school students in Kent County this fall.

College fairs offer a great one-stop shopping opportunity for college-bound students who aren’t sure exactly where they might want to attend college. Last year, more than 1,000 people attended College Night at Aquinas.
