Everyone is invited to the fair … the Co-Lin Natchez Campus 2013 College Fair.

Copiah-Lincoln Community College Natchez is delighted to sponsor our 23rd annual College Fair Wednesday. More than two dozen college representatives, military recruiters and other agencies are scheduled to be on hand at the exciting event.

The activities take place from 9 a.m. to noon Wednesday in the Redd/Watkins Vocational Technical Center. The entire community is invited to attend to meet with the representatives on hand.

There is no charge to attend.

Several local high schools are planning to bring groups of students to explore their options for the future and attend workshops on the ACT test and the financial aid process.

“This is an excellent opportunity for area students to meet and talk with recruiters and counselors from a wide range of colleges,” Co-Lin Natchez Vice President Teresa Busby said.

“Of course, we’ll have our own Co-Lin representatives there, too.”

We have invited a representative from most of the major public and private colleges and universities in Mississippi, Louisiana and surrounding states, in addition to having representatives from all branches of the Armed Forces.

Here is a list of the Mississippi schools who have been invited and traditionally send representatives: Alcorn State University, Alcorn State University School of Nursing, Alcorn State University School of Business — Natchez Campus, Belhaven College, Jackson State University, Millsaps College, Mississippi College, Mississippi State University, Mississippi University for Women, Mississippi Valley State University, Tougaloo College, University of Mississippi, University of Mississippi Medical Center, University of Southern Mississippi and William Carey College.

Colleges and universities from Louisiana and surrounding states also participate in the fair. The following is a list of those invited: Lane College, Louisiana State University, Louisiana State University Alexandria, Louisiana Tech University, Nashville Auto-Diesel College, Northwestern State University, Southeastern Louisiana University, Southern University, University of Louisiana at Monroe, University of New Orleans and Xavier University.

Co-Lin is pleased to offer this community service. We hope to see you at the fair.
