New Brunswick, New Jersey, January 25, 2018—Rutgers University–New Brunswick Office of Enrollment Management, in partnership with the Rutgers–New Brunswick Office of Summer and Winter Sessions, held the first K-12 Pre-College Opportunities Fair on January 20, 2018 at the Rutgers Student Center in New Brunswick, NJ. More than 750 participants from throughout the state attended the free event.

 

The fair provided an opportunity for individuals to engage with staff from a wide range of Rutgers pre-college programs, and learn about university-wide options available to K-12 students throughout the calendar year. Representatives from close to twenty different programs converged at the event.

 

According to high school student Kaitlyn Du “I enjoyed how there were different tables set up, so that I could bounce from one information booth to another. It's especially important for a high school student to be involved in different summer activities in preparation for college admissions. There was a lot of information to help me with college admission. ”

 

The fair benefitted not only pre-college students, but also parents and school counselors alike. "This was perfect timing for us as our daughters are preparing to apply to college. The seminars offered great insights into the admission process, financial aid and SAT’s. The fair not only offer vital info for our high school daughters, but also summer camp info for our elementary daughter,” said Anna Huynh.

 

Representatives from Financial Aid, Undergraduate Admissions, and Rutgers Test Prep were also available to speak with, as well as present workshops on various topics.

 

“Attendees left with a better understanding of K-12 opportunities at Rutgers, as well as the college admissions and financial aid process,” said Lauren Olsen, Manager of Pre-College Projects and Partnerships for the New Brunswick Office of Enrollment Management. “We look forward to continuing to provide opportunities for K-12 students and families to connect to Rutgers.”
