What to Expect

College Fairs Generally follow the same structure and guidelines:

Gymnasium or Cafeteria Setting

  • Usually you will be located at an assigned table and engage with students as they walk up to ask questions
  • NO formal presentation of the school (such as a powerpoint)
  • Give students/parents a summary of the school- you can give them brochures as well as have them fill their information out on a CVP card
  • Students may ask question about academics, majors, military lifestyle, the leadership program and more

Who you will interact with

  • Be prepared to interact with students as well as their parents
  • You could be encountered with students as young as 8th grade and as old as Seniors.  Generally College Fairs will consist of sophmores, juniors, and seniors
  • Parents will want to know information about tuition and scholarships which we will provide you with- generally you should refer them to The Citadel's financial aid department
  • You may have students come up to you and they might not know what to say.  Please engage them by asking them about things like what major are you interested in?  Have you thought about the military?  What interest you in The Citadel?
