The 2022 College Fair was held at Martz Hall and was available to most students within Schuylkill County. Mason Major talks to Moravian University about future plans.

The Schuylkill County Regional College Fair is a large event that took place at Martz Hall of D.H.H.L Pottsville Middle School. At this fair there were over 90 representatives who showed up and let students explore their options for after graduation. Those 90 and up representatives included the Military, different colleges, business schools, trade schools and specialty schools. Most of the High School students within Schuylkill County are attending the college fair.

Senior Paige Deatrich said, “I thought this year’s fair was a great opportunity for students to start thinking about college opportunities. It’s nice because most of the colleges that come are pretty close to home. I very much enjoyed the college fair this year. Being a senior definitely makes things more serious and exciting.”

This year’s fair was held on October 6th from 7:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. This year will officially be the 11th year of the college fair being held here at Martz Hall.

Junior Armonia Paniagua said, “I think it is a great chance for students to experience the vast opportunities out there without having to find time on their own.”

The Schuylkill County College Fair was a fun, exciting and easy way to get in touch with certain colleges. Instead of trying to find time in your busy schedule to go visit each college they take time out of theirs to come talk to you. A few of the colleges that attended were West Virginia University, Alvernia University, Bloomsburg University, Kutztown University and University of Pittsburgh.

Junior Madison Eroh said, “I enjoyed seeing what schools offer without having to take time on the weekends to visit them. This is super beneficial because not everyone has time to visit colleges, and when they come here for the juniors and seniors, that’s a big deal. Students can get a true feel for how certain colleges are this way.”
