April Adult College Fair
Published on April 08, 2021
The Adult College Fair has transitioned into a three-day virtual program running from April 22-24. Adults interested in returning to or starting college as non-traditional students (not immediately after high school) will have the opportunity to meet representatives from local colleges and universities, and attend informational sessions to learn about:
- All levels of higher education (Associates degree to PhD)
- Funding opportunities
- The college experience after COVID
- Online learning opportunities
- Career outlook and related degree programs
While this year’s Fair is a change from the traditional in-person event, the virtual format is valuable for busy adults looking for learning opportunities and personal growth.
“They will have the opportunity to participate in live, interactive presentations and meet with representatives from individual colleges and universities in virtual breakout rooms,” said Jana Hill, Adult Services Manager. “Those who attend virtually will get the same valuable information they would receive at an in-person college fair, without the hassle of travel, parking or securing childcare. Our sessions will be held in the evenings and on Saturday in order to better meet the needs of working adults.”
The Fort Worth Public Library has partnered with the North Texas Collegiate Consortium, which includes 24 member institutions. Students will also have access to free Library resources, such as books, databases and study space.
