LSU Alexandria hosting Rapides Parish College Fair

Released: 09/17/2012

High school seniors and parents from throughout Rapides Parish will have the opportunity to meet with college and military representatives during the Rapides Parish college fair, hosted by Louisiana State University at Alexandria on Sept. 20-21.

Colleges and universities from throughout the state, as well as representatives from the various military branches, will be on hand for the event. During the daytime, Rapides Parish seniors will be brought to LSU Alexandria campus to browse and gather information.

Parents are encouraged to attend the Parent Night event on Thursday, Sept. 20, beginning at 6 p.m. in the Barbara Brumfield Caffey Annex. A representative from Louisiana Office of Student Financial Assistance will make a short presentation, followed by a browse session with the college and military recruiters. The evening event is open to all parents and students from Rapides Parish, including home school students.

Students can register through and complete an electronic inquiry form to receive a printed barcode. When students bring that barcode to the event, it can then be scanned by recruiters, allowing more time for interaction with representatives and less time completing individual inquiry cards.
