For Students & Parents

Westchester-Putnam College Fairs

Representatives from more than 200 two-year and four-year colleges, nursing schools and business schools will participate in the Westchester Putnam College Fairs

There is no need for students or parents to register nor is there any fee whatsoever. You may attend at any time and for as much time as you need.

Students and parents are invited to take advantage of this opportunity to meet face-to-face with admissions representatives from hundreds of colleges throughout the country.  Officers and enlisted personnel from the various branches of the military will also be on hand to discuss the military’s enlistment and education programs such as R.O.T.C., the military academies, and the GI Bill.


The College Conference is a timesaving opportunity for students and parents to gather a lot of information in one night. In addition to asking questions, students and parents will be able to set up college interviews, pick up literature and learn about the various financial aid programs available.

Southern Westchester

For Counselors

Please inform your students of the upcoming College Conferences in Westchester County. College Fairs are time-saving opportunities for students and parents to gather a lot of information from a number of colleges, universities and military services in one day. 


Copies of College Fair Guide will be distributed to guidance offices three weeks prior to a College Conference. 

Why associate a College Conference with career guidance?

Colleges and career schools are stepping stones to careers, therefore, a College Conference is an excellent opportunity to gather information for career preparation. The more you put into the College Conference, the more you will get out of it.

For Counselors

About The Westchester-Putnam College Conferences

By Louis C. Brunelli

What happens at the College Conference?

The College Conference is an important event to help you plan your future. Primarily, it is an information gathering day, a time for you to learn about many different schools and colleges.


How does the College Conference fit into my guidance program?

Guidance is indeed a curri­culum in which school counselors do not simply advise and counsel but attempt to teach students how to make decisions, how to collect information, and how to develop effective plans.


How does this affect college selection?

College selection – the de­cis­­ion whether or not to go to college or some kind of post-secondary school, as well as which college to go to – is one of the most important decisions a person has to make in life. The better your guidance program has prepared you to make decisions, the better your college selection decision is bound to be.


Will there be any special services?

Professional counselors will be available to speak with students and parents about college selection and financial aid. Financial aid information, as well as a variety of banking programs for financing an education, can be discussed with representatives from a number of local banks. In addition, representatives from the military services will be there to discuss direct enlistment as well as ROTC and other college programs.

Who represents the colleges and schools?

In almost all instances, a full-time employee of the college or school’s admissions office attends the conference. Some schools are represented by alumni who have donated their time to speak with prospective students.


Can’t I just take a virtual tour online?

Be sensible. Sure you’re busy but one look in person can be worth a thousand views on a Web site. Plus, you don’t know how old those images are. You want to see what’s happening now. The feelings you get by spending a day visiting classes, dorms, the cafeteria, admissions staff, etc. usually are the real deciding factors in making a good college selection. Students should always visit a campus before making their final decision. Also, many colleges expect you to visit and assume you’re not too interested if you don’t make the effort. College visitation policies vary greatly. Talk to your counselor about various colleges.

My SATs and ACTs really are low compared to my high school average. I guess this eliminates me from a highly competitive college, doesn’t it?

This is a major reason why college conferences are so helpful. Talk to the admissions representatives and explain your concerns. Most colleges look at many factors especially high school average, when reviewing a person’s overall potential
