Burnsville High School hosts College Fair

More than 50 colleges and universities will be featured at the sixth annual College Fair at Burnsville High School from 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 29, in the gym at the main campus, 600 E. Highway 13.

Students in grades 9-12 and parents are encouraged to attend. The public is also invited at no charge.

Two- and four-year colleges and universities from throughout the Upper Midwest will participate, and representatives will be available to answer questions about degrees, programs, admission requirements, scholarships, tuition and more.

“Education beyond high school is more important than ever,” said Veronica Walter, a guidance counselor at Burnsville High School. “That’s why we encourage students to explore their options by attending the fair and speaking with college representatives.”

“We are committed to helping students explore and find the ‘right fit’ for post-high school education,” she added.

The event is sponsored by Burnsville-Eagan-Savage School District 191 and the Minnesota Association of Counselors of Color.
