NDSU is scheduled to co-host the annual Fargo-Moorhead College Fair Monday, Sept. 24, to help students learn about area higher education options. It is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Scheels Arena, 5225 31st Ave. S. in Fargo.
Approximately 1,500 students, parents and counselors from more than 50 area high schools were invited to attend. Nearly 100 post-secondary institutions and military organizations will participate.
The fair provides high school students a chance to meet with many schools in a small amount of time, said Doug Zeltinger, NDSU admission counselor. Students usually use the fair as a way to compare costs and types of programs that colleges offer.
Minnesota State University Moorhead and Concordia also host the fair.
The Minnesota Association for College Admission Counseling and the Dakota Association for College Admission Counseling-North Dakota Council co-sponsor the fair. The event is free to attend.

NDSU is recognized as one of the nation's top 108 public and private universities by the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education.
