FDU To Host Second Annual College Expo

October 29, 2005 in Rothman Center

Teaneck, NJ (October 6, 2005) óAgain this year, adults and prospective graduate students will be able to attend a regional college fair designed exclusively for them. This is an opportunity for adults and students interested in graduate study to investigate the hundreds of undergraduate and graduate educational programs available to them in the New Jersey/New York metropolitan area and beyond.

More than 50 colleges and universities, most of them located in New Jersey and New York, will come together under the sponsorship of the Higher Education Consortium of the NY Metropolitan Area and offer College Expo 2005, on Saturday, October 29, from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. The second annual college fair for prospective adult and graduate students is free and will be held in Fairleigh Dickinson Universityís Rothman Center, University Plaza Drive, Hackensack, NJ.

Adults have a variety of goals when they consider continuing their education. For some, it is a graduate degree while others want to complete an undergraduate degree that was side tracked by employment or family obligations. Many are ready to start a college program for the first time and others are interested in specialized certificate programs. This regional college fair gives adults an efficient and convenient way to talk to representatives of more than 50 colleges and universities in the area and learn about the programs that fit their needs and goals.
