Preparing for the College Fair:

Register for a barcode before the fair by visiting StriveScan.comRegister early to avoid the lines! Here are some tips when registering for the College Fair:

  • The profile should be filled out by the student, not a parent/guardian. If a parent/guardian is filling out the form on behalf of the student, please use the student's information. This information will be used by the colleges and universities to communicate about future opportunities at their institution.
  • When filling out the profile, make sure to select the following:
    • Event Location: Illinois
    • What event are you attending?: 10/15/19 - College of DuPage
  • Find out which colleges will be at the fair and write down the names of the ones you want to learn about.
  • Make a list of any questions you have.
  • Make sure to use your personal email address, not your high school email. Also, share an email address that won't embarrass you - remember, college admission officers will see it!

Where will the College Fair take place?

The College of DuPage College Fair will take place in the Physical Education Center (PEC) off of East College Road and Park Boulevard. The closest parking locations are lots College 1 or College 2, right outside of the PEC and Berg Instructional Center (BIC). For directions, visit our Maps & Directions page.

Check-in begins at 5:30 in the PE lobby. Doors to the College Fair will not open until exactly 6 p.m., so plan accordingly.  

At the fair:

  • Check the College of DuPage College Fair website to get a map of the fair. Plan your route early so you hit all of the college booths you want to for the night. Some of the larger state-schools get crowded, so be ready with your questions!  If there is no map available, do a quick survey of the room to locate your colleges.
  • Visit booths and ask college representatives questions. For example, you can ask, "What kind of student are you looking for?" or "What makes your campus special?"
  • Take a minute to jot down any information you think is important before moving on to the next booth.
  • Check out some of the other booths when you're done with the colleges on your list. You may stumble onto a great college you hadn't considered.
  • Attend an information session to get expert advice.

  • Organize the college material you collected and review it that week while it's fresh in your mind.
  • Go over any notes you took during the fair.
  • Do more research on the colleges you're thinking about. Explore websites, contact the admission office or plan a campus visit. If you liked what you saw at the fair, it may be time to see the college in person.
