Kent State University at Stark is preparing high school juniors and seniors and their parents on how to choose the right college. Get Started: A Crash Course in College Planning, a no-cost information session designed to facilitate a smooth transition from high school to college, will take place on Thursday, Sept. 27, from 6 – 7:45 p.m. in Kent State Stark’s Main Hall Auditorium, 6000 Frank Avenue NW in Jackson Township. This event is applicable for students preparing to attend any higher education institution and is not limited to Kent State Stark.
Get Started will guide the process of choosing the right college by breaking down preferences, needs, resources, academic program offerings, scholarships and other aspects that give the student the best chance for a successful college career. Session topics include questions to ask on a college visit; choosing a major; the typical college class; comparing institutions and tuition costs; how to apply for scholarships; and on-campus jobs, relationships and commitments, among others.
This comprehensive event will equip high school students with the correct questions to ask when they attend the upcoming Stark County College & Career Fair, to be held on Tuesday, Oct. 2, from 6 - 8 p.m. at the Canton Memorial Civic Center.
