More than 30 colleges and universities will be represented at the Regional College Fair from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 29, in Young Gymnasium at Missouri Southern State University.

The fair will be held in conjunction with the Missouri Association of College Admission Counseling (MOACAC). The non-profit organization’s mission is to help students and their families through the college selection process. Representatives from Kansas University, the Universities of Missouri, Crowder College and Missouri State University will be present, among many others.

“Students will be able to receive information from many different colleges and find out what opportunities are available to them. It is a great way to start coming to a decision on where they would like to spend the next four years of their lives,” said Abby Bishop, MSSU coordinator of campus visits.

High-school students, especially juniors and seniors, and their parents are encouraged to attend. Students can register for the fair at

Masks will be required for those in attendance
