College Night is an opportunity for high school students and their parents to meet with representatives from approximately 80 colleges, universities and trade schools to learn more about their campuses and educational programs. Students can learn more about acceptance requirements, degree programs offered and other valuable information to get them prepared for the next steps in their future journey.
