Co-sponsored by Marietta College and The Marietta Times, the event will be held in the Dyson Baudo Recreation Center on the College’s campus. High School students from 12 counties, along with their parents, are invited to attend.
These counties include Athens, Guernsey, Meigs, Monroe, Morgan, Noble, and Washington counties in Ohio as well as Pleasants, Ritchie, Wetzel, Wirt and Wood counties in West Virginia. Last year’s attendance at the college night included students and parents from 25 high schools in the region.
The college fair is designed for high school students beginning their college search who are looking for either two- or four-year institutions, a military organization, or a trade or technical school. It gives those interested the opportunity to speak face-to-face with representatives.
