Western New England University to Host NEACAC Regional College Fair October 5

SPRINGFIELD, MA (09/21/2021) Western New England University will host a college fair sponsored by the New England Association for College Admission Counseling (NEACAC) on Tuesday, October 5, from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. in the Caprio Alumni Healthful Living Center located at 1215 Wilbraham Road, Springfield, MA.

Representatives from more than 100 colleges and universities will be available to speak with high school students and their parents about their respective institutions and the college admission process. The event is free and open to the public. Masks are currently required but check here for more information closer to the date of the fair.

Prior to the start of the fair, the University will host a free 45-minute College and Financial Aid Awareness workshop beginning at 5:00 p.m. in the Center for the Sciences and Pharmacy (CSP). “This workshop will give parents and students a great introduction into the entire college search and financial aid process; a process that can get confusing,” remarked Bryan Gross, Vice President for Enrollment Management and Marketing at Western New England University. No registration is required to attend the free workshop.

All high school students are encouraged to attend this college fair-the largest to be held in western Massachusetts this fall. An up-to-date list of the colleges that have confirmed attendance can be found at
