Edison State hosts college fair


PIQUA — To help parents and students through the college selection process, Edison State Community College will be hosting its annual College Fair on Nov. 4, from 12:30 to 2 p.m. in the gymnasium at the Piqua Campus.

Over 65 colleges and universities from Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky will be at Edison State to speak with students, parents and guidance counselors about opportunities in higher education. Advisors and representatives will be able to address questions regarding courses, tuition, job placement rates for majors, accreditation, the transfer process, and more.

“This is a great opportunity for community members and students, high school and those currently attending Edison, to talk to college representatives about continuing their education,” said Christina Raterman, enrollment manager at Edison State.

“Credits from Edison transfer nationwide to both public and private colleges which is just one of the many reasons our education is a great value for families. I’m excited that students can come here to learn about the different academic and student life environments available to them at four-year institutions.”

Some of the highlighted schools attending this year’s college fair will be Bowling Green State University, University of Cincinnati, University of Dayton, The Ohio State University and Wright State University.

Edison State Community College will be highlighting its more than 30 associate degrees and one-year certificate programs, designed to help students transfer to four-year colleges and universities or help launch a professional career.
