A Minnesota Education Fair (MEF) for all high school students and their parents will be held in the Wellness Center at the University of Minnesota Crookston on Tuesday, September 18, 2018, from 9 to 10:30 a.m. Admission is free.  Students should contact their high school counselor for more college fairinformation. 

MEF provides students and parents an opportunity to explore a variety of options for continued education and technical training after high school.  Representatives from nearly 60 educational institutions and other organizations will be available to answer questions and provide important information for post-high school planning.  Structured like a trade show, students and parents can view displays and speak to representatives from the schools, colleges, and organizations that interest them.

Rather than filling out information cards at the fair, students can register ahead of time and create a personal barcode to be scanned at the fair by the colleges that interest them.  Visit before you arrive, print out the barcode, and bring it along to the fair.

Sponsored by the Minnesota Association for College Admission Counseling (MACAC), the same group that hosts the National College Fair held in Twin Cities each fall, this program offers an excellent opportunity for high school student to begin planning for life after graduation. 

The University of Minnesota Crookston now delivers 35 bachelor's degree programs, 25 minors, and 40 areas of emphasis on campus as well as 16 degree programs entirely online.  These degrees are offered in the areas of agriculture and natural resources; business; liberal arts and education; and math, science and technology.  With an enrollment of 1,800 undergraduates from more than 20 countries and 40 states, the Crookston campus offers a supportive, close-knit atmosphere that leads to a prestigious University of Minnesota degree.  "Small Campus.
