High school students from three counties learned what college life could be like at a college fair hosted by West Virginia Wesleyan.
More than 40 institutions presented information to students about academics and other opportunities. Students from Barbour, Lewis, and Upshur counties were all invited.
Admission officials said students that are college-bound were given access to representatives to begin or enhance their college search.
"Students are able to go and see colleges from all kinds of states, trade schools and even folks from the military. So it also gives them a chance to go on a college campus to see what a college campus is like and interact with a lot of different professionals from a lot of different schools," said John Waltz, W.Va. Wesleyan Director of Admissions.
This was the fourth year for the college fair. Officials said attending a college fair allows students to receive information about institutions that they may not have considered.
