SHC’s Back-to-School College Fair to Kick Off in August

(Mobile, Ala.) Spring Hill College (SHC) will host its annual Back-to-School College Fair on Thursday, Aug. 29, in LeBlanc Hall of the Barter Student Center from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. Representatives of SHC and other colleges and universities will be there to share information and resources available at their institution with prospective students and their families. Those who attend the fair will learn more about academic programs, financial resources, and the campus community from colleges and universities in or near Alabama. 

The fair provides an opportunity for students and their families to have one-on-one time with admission counselors, financial aid advisors, and faculty to inquire about clubs, organizations, and campus events at Spring Hill and other colleges.

According to Madison Dempsey, Spring Hill College’s director of admissions, “Spring Hill’s Back-to-School College Fair allows students and families to explore various colleges and universities from the southeastern region without traveling too far from home. An array of institutions from the Southeast will attend to provide comprehensive information about their institutions and their college admissions processes. We are excited to offer this opportunity to the community and cannot wait to welcome students and their families to our campus.”

Attendees will also have the opportunity to tour SHC’s award-winning campus. This event provides an excellent opportunity to make the college decision-making process a little easier. Register here.
