EL SEGUNDO, Calif. /CitizenWire/ -- On October 16, 2022, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., Vistamar School hosts its 14th annual Multicultural Student College Fair at Vistamar School, 737 Hawaii Street in El Segundo. Open to all students, this College Admissions Fair is an opportunity for high school students to meet representatives and alumni from a wide range of top colleges, universities, and service academies from across the country. These institutions seek to meet Los Angeles area high school students of all backgrounds.
The list of attending institutions includes some of the nation's most selective colleges. There are also many private liberal arts colleges, public institutions from numerous states across the country, and historically black colleges and universities attending.
Among those represented at the fair this year will be MIT, Northwestern, Dartmouth College, Colgate University, Tufts University, University of Michigan, Washington University at St. Louis, UC San Diego, UC Santa Barbara, USC, Bucknell University, Elon University, DePaul University, American University in Paris, University of Oregon, Agnes Scott College, and many more.
"Vistamar School was founded on a commitment to diversity of thought and culture that encourages authentic exchange of perspectives, mutual respect, and a mature understanding of the world," said Chris Bright, Head of School. "Early on, we realized an opportunity to provide any student in the LA area the chance to meet with a broad range of top college representatives, whether or not they had time and resources to travel widely."
There will also be workshops for students and parents on Financial Aid Basics, offered in English and Spanish, and on the Historically Black College and University Experience.
"In past years, we've had over 700 student and family attendees," according to Gregg Murray, Director of Life Planning at Vistamar School. "College representatives appreciate that they can efficiently meet such a wide variety of strong students."
