  • ! College Rep Visits at Fairview

    College representatives begin visiting Fairview during the first week of September and continue throughout the year. The biggest concentration of visits will be during the week of September 25-29, and most of the presentations take place in the College/Career Center in the Counseling Office. Junior and Senior students can attend during a free period or during class period ONLY if they have received permission from their teachers in advance. Sophomore and Freshman students may attend only during free periods. Coming to these visits helps students become more familiar with the variety of campuses and allows them to meet with reps who will be reading their applications. The college representative visit schedule is posted on our College Rep Visit Calendar, which is updated frequently, so check back. When students list the colleges they are considering on their Naviance software account, they will automatically receive an email about when reps from those colleges are coming to Fairview.

    In addition to these, many colleges combine to hold evening meetings in cities across the country. These meetings occur throughout the year so watch for them on our College Rep Visit Calendar, which is updated frequently, so check back often. You might also check college webpages to see travel schedules.
