Area high school students who want to learn more about going to college or joining the armed forces should consider attending the annual Mid-Ohio Valley College Night at Marietta College.
Representatives from more than 60 colleges and universities, as well as recruiters from different branches of the U.S. military, will be in Marietta College’s Dyson Baudo Recreation Center from 6:00-8:00 p.m., Monday, September 16.
Co-sponsored by Marietta College and The Marietta Times, the event is free and open to high school students and families. Last year’s attendance at the college night included students and parents from almost 30 high schools in the region.
The college fair is designed for high school students beginning their college search who are looking for two- or four-year institutions, a military organization, or a trade or technical school. It gives those interested the opportunity to speak face-to-face with representatives.
Marietta College officials are pleased to bring this valuable program to the region’s students and families.
