Lock Haven University will be taking part in its first Virtual Grad Fair on Tuesday, Feb 26. The Fair, done entirely online, will offer Lock Haven Students an opportunity to explore over 200 hundred Grad programs across the state.
“11 of 14 state schools will be taking part,” says Jerry Falco, assistant director for graduate admissions. “It gives them a chance to learn about these programs without having to travel to the Universities.”
Students will register for free and be given slotted times to join chat rooms hosted by faculty and professors for the program of their choice. In addition, students can meet with faculty at Lock Haven and discuss options face to face. Falco encourages students to at least look into the possibility of Graduate Schools.
Falco explains that the cost of setting up the fair is high, but by combining efforts with the other State Schools Lock Haven can offer the forum for free.
“The Fair is a great way to connect with prospective students in a forum that is convenient to them,” says Falco. “Students can have their questions answered quickly and can communicate with current graduate students and faculty.”
