Each Colleges That Change Lives program begins with a 30-minute panel presentation on completing a college search today.

We will challenge you to view popular college rankings as just one measure of quality among many. Above all, we will encourage you to make the college search process a well-informed journey that leads to the best possible outcome: finding the best college fit.
Immediately after the panel presentation, the college fair begins and lasts for approximately 1.5 hours. Students and families will be able to collect information from and speak directly with admission representatives from the colleges and universities that inspired the book Colleges That Change Lives.
