The mere thought of college sends a surge of anticipation through most high school seniors.
Where we’ll go next year and what we’ll do are, for some of us, simply unanswered, anxiety-provoking questions.
Luckily enough for the seniors and even other students at Nashua Christian Academy, our anxiety can ease up a bit, because we have the opportunity to become more informed and aware of our options for the future at our annual college fair.
For several years, NCA has hosted the Christian College Fair at Grace Fellowship Church for NCA students, as well as its church members and even the public. This year, the fair will be from 7-9 p.m. Monday.
These colleges will be present: Anderson University, Baptist Bible College, Calvin College, Charleston Southern University, Cedarville University, Cairn University, Davis College, Houghton College, Eastern Nazarene College, Valley Forge Christian College, Waynesburg University, Union University, Oklahoma Baptist University, Palm Beach Atlantic University, Lancaster Bible College, Lipscomb University, Messiah College, Regent University and Roberts Wesleyan College.
Some of the colleges are right here in New England, and all give the college aspirant a broad range of options for his or her future.
These colleges are known as academically rigorous while also providing a fun, safe campus on which to live.
“The great thing about the College Fair is the abundance of human contacts for the schools, which open the door to ask more in-depth questions down the line should you be interested in the school,” senior Joey Cameron said.
“Most of the information there can be found online and in magazines and advertisements, but the human representatives are what make it special.”
Having been to the college fair for several years, I can testify to the friendly atmosphere and the helpful college representatives who are fully equipped to answer any questions attendees may have.
With so many colleges to choose from, students’ college anxieties are sure to dissipate quickly. Even for those who can only stop in for only a few minutes, a quick glance at the college fair is most definitely worth the time.
