College Fairs & Information Sessions

CTCL college admission representatives talking with students and parents at a college fair
2024 marks the 26th year that CTCL has offered a national series of information sessions and college fairs for students, parents and counselors featuring the colleges and universities that inspired the book, Colleges That Change Lives.

Each program opens with a 30-minute presentation on the student-centered college search, the value of the liberal arts, and an overview of what makes this collection of schools distinctly different.

After the opening presentation attendees are invited to attend a 90-minute college fair. The fair provides students, families, and college access professionals with an opportunity to connect directly with admission officers from the CTCL member schools.

Students, parents, family members, counselors, and other college access professionals are encouraged to pre-register. Registration links for all individuals and all information sessions & college fair events are available here. Please select the information session & college fair event you would like to attend from the dropdown menu.
