The 2016 East Bay College Connection fair is on Saturday, May 7, 2016. Details will be coming to this page in the spring.
The 2015 East Bay College Connection fair was a great success! Thank you to all who participated.The next East Bay College Connection will be held on Saturday, May 7th, 2015 from 1:00 - 4:00 PM at Saint Mary's College of California, 1928 St Marys Rd, Moraga, CA, with sessions beginning at 12:15 PM.
In conjunction with the Western Association of College Admissions Counselings (WACAC), Saint Mary's College of California invites students and families from across the Bay Area to come and visit with over 150 representatives from colleges across the country and abroad. The program will not only consist of a college fair but also workshops led by experts in college admissions and financial aid.
The college fair begins at 1 p.m., but sessions are from 12:15-3 p.m.
Students are encouraged to register for the college fair in order to receive a scannable barcode for the college fair. The fair is free for all students. This will give you more time to have meaningful conversations with college representatives rather than filling out inquiry cards at each table. Registration will open in spring 2016.
