NEW: VIRTUAL COLLEGE FAIRS
Did you know that most colleges, universities and other programs have resources available online to help you build your post-secondary list? There are virtual tours, live Q&A sessions, virtual coffee chats with alumni and more.

Another great way to learn about multiple post-secondary institutions is a virtual college fair! Register here for the Michigan Promoting the Publics Fair happening next week. *Plus - there's a chance to win a $300 scholarship for participating!
