College Fairs & Information Sessions

CTCL college admission representatives talking with students and parents at a college fair
2023 marks the 25th 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 30-minute financial aid workshop and 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.

This year’s programs have now concluded, and the 2024 programs will be announced early in the new year.
