How do I register for the College Fair?
A registration link will be added to the College Fair page of the OCSA website in August. Students will be asked to click on the link, complete the registration process, and print out a page with their unique barcode which they will bring with them to the College Fair. Scanning this barcode at college booths indicates your interest in that school as well as adding you to their contact list for future communication.
What is the expectation for student participation?
Juniors and Seniors will have priority access to all facets of the College Fair. They will be expected to attend the booth fair at their grade level's assigned time, and sign up for workshops, panel presentations and master classes that interest them. Interested Sophomores and Freshman will be invited to attend the last half hour of the booth fair.
What do I do if a college I am interested in is not participating in the fair?
A preliminary list of colleges planning to attend, will be posted on the College Fair page of the OCSA website in late August. If after reviewing that information, you would like to suggest a college not listed, please see Mrs. Beck in Student Services. We are happy to invite additional colleges based on your input. Remember that it is unlikely that every college will be able to attend, but we will certainly do our best to invite a wide variety of colleges of interest to our students.
What food options will be available?
Food trucks will be parked on 10th Street on Thursday afternoon for students to enjoy. Parents who choose to arrive early for the Thursday evening College Prep Sessions are also welcome to purchase food from the trucks and join their students for dinner on campus.
