College Fair

On Tuesday October 27th from 6:30 -8:30 p.m., a college fair will be held at the Shriner's Auditorium in Wilmington, MA. The Burlington High School Guidance Department co-sponsors the event with many other Middlesex League High Schools. Usually over two-hundred colleges will attend. A college fair can be a very overwhelming experience for parents and students. The National Association for College Admissions Counseling (NACAC) has developed some very helpful tips that when attending a college fair. We also recommend bringing a pre-determined list of colleges. Make it a priority to visit the schools on your list, then time permitting check out some others. Please remember you are not obligated to stay the whole time, many students spend about an hour at the event.  

If you will be attending the Reading Cooperative College Fair on Tuesday, October 27 at Shriner's Auditorium, there will be a text-messaging registration system available for you to use. Instead of filling out paper contact cards by hand for every school you’re interested in, you can save time by providing your information via text message to colleges of your choice.
Here’s what you need to do:

1.     Text  #BurlingtonHS to 424-888-7537. You will get prompted to fill out your basic contact information via text.
2.     At the fair, you will receive a list of colleges and their texting codes. When you find a school you like, text the code to the number, and your information will get sent electronically to that school.
