The College Fair is being held Tuesday, Oct. 14 from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. at the Ketchikan High School main gym. Forty-two colleges will be represented at the fair. EXPLORE night is tonight starting at 5 p.m. with FAFSA information and ending around 8 p.m. School counselor Mr. McClory said that EXPLORE night is done by college representatives and going to these workshops could potentially minimize future debt.
“Explore night workshops are being done by the college reps here,” Mr. McClory said. “They will be the ones reading your applications if you decide to apply this year or next year… If you go to these workshops hopefully we can minimize the debt you would incur.”
EXPLORE night is special for Kayhi because Kayhi is the only school that has the EXPLORE night the day before the college fair.
“We’re the only school that has workshops the day before. We are the first stop on their tours,” said Mr. McClory.
Mr. McClory said that during the college fair it would be a good idea to ask for fee waivers and save some money.
“One good thing to ask them is for a waiver for the applications. If they like you they give those things out like candy.”
