The Georgia Education Articulation Committee’s fall 2011 PROBE College Fair will be in Hinesville from 8:45-11:45 a.m. Thursday at Bradwell Institute. The fair is free and open to high school students and their families. The eight-week fall tour consists of 61 college fairs at various schools and venues across the state.
GEAC’s mission is to stimulate interest in postsecondary education for citizens of Georgia by bringing together students, parents, counselors, administrators and representatives of postsecondary educational institutions.
The tour gives local high school students a chance to speak one-on-one with representatives from colleges and universities in one central location.
“For many families, finding the time and resources, especially with the price of gas, to visit colleges and universities is tough,” PROBE Executive Director Bill Smith said. “By bringing the PROBE college fair to the students, they are able to be exposed to schools they might not otherwise have a chance to experience.”
