More than 50 colleges were represented at the third annual West Essex Regional High School College Fair held on Oct. 25.
Carole Clarke, Director of Guidance and Student Services for the West Essex Regional School District, organized the fair for high school students from West Essex, as well as students from Cedar Grove, Glen Ridge, James Caldwell high schools and Mount St. Dominic Academy.
“This was a wonderful event to expose our students as well as students from area high schools to a variety of colleges from across the country,” Clarke said. “Students could begin the college admission process by exploring the programs offered at each college and meet one-on-one with college representatives who can answer their questions.
