Collegmakers, CHS students visit Albany University PROBE fair
On September 7, 2018, CollegeMakers took CHS students to the PROBE fair in Albany, Ga., at Albany University. Over 60 colleges were gathered around the Albany University gym. Schools all around Georgia attended the fair.
The college fair started at 9 a.m. and ended at noon. CHS students departed from CHS at 8:30 a.m. and arrived back at the high school at 12:30 p.m.
Every college had a representative set up at a table to either take up a card with student information or scan a bar code off the phones of students who already had their information set up. Students were given cards, booklets, and bags with everything they recently learned from college representatives.
At the PROBE fair, colleges took up students' information to give them knowledge on free campus tours. Colleges explained their academics and courses students could take on their campuses. They explained their tuitions, GPA requirements, SAT and ACT score requirements, and scholarships available through their schools.
The colleges present at the fair came from all around Georgia, Florida, and Tennessee. Some examples of colleges there were Valdosta State, Columbus University, Georgia Southern University, Bryan College and College of Coastal Georgia. There were colleges based on different religions and cultures.
CollegeMakers' next College trip will be Tuesday, September 9, back to Albany University. CHS students will take a tour of the campus and become informed on the courses available at ASU.
To sign up for upcoming campus tours and college fairs, CHS students can go to the CollegeMakers office. All student's must be signed up for CollegeMakers and turn in a field trip permission form signed by parents.
