The Tulare County Office of Education’s annual College Night will be held on Tuesday, September 10 at a new location – the Heritage Complex at the International Agri-Center in Tulare. 

Representatives from nearly 80 colleges, universities and technical schools will be in attendance to answer questions about entrance requirements, tuition and housing at their institutions. In addition, the U.S. Army and the California National Guard will have representatives at the event. 

The event begins at 5:30 p.m. Tulare County College Night is designed for high school students and parents who want to learn more about preparing for and applying to colleges.

 In addition to the college representatives, students and parents can visit five informational presentations at 6:30 and 7:15 p.m. on topics that include financial aid, scholarships and the SAT/ACT tests, and top characteristics colleges are looking for in a student. Additionally, Spanish-speaking representatives will be available to provide information to parents on financial aid. 

College Night is coordinated by the Tulare County Office of Education and supported by numerous local service clubs, businesses and high schools. Community support not only helps with the cost of the event, but supports the College Night Scholarship fund.

 “The College Night committee does an outstanding job of bringing higher education resources to thousands of Tulare County students each year,” says Tulare County Superintendent of Schools Tim Hire. “The event is a great collaboration between parent volunteers, teachers, college representatives and community supporters.”
