Whittier Union in September hosted its annual District College Fair, attracting hundreds of students and their parents to the California High School campus, where they met with dozens of college representatives and learned how to prepare for college.
The fair featured more than 50 college representatives from such institutions as UCLA, UC Berkeley, Cal State Long Beach and Rio Hondo College; out-of-state colleges and private universities included University of Southern California, Biola University and University of La Verne.
Students and their parents received first-hand information about the college application process for the UC and CSU systems and financial aid during several informative workshops. Other workshops covered topics on college savings, majors and careers, financial aid and college sports recruiting.
“Whittier Union is committed to offering our students and their families access to as much information as possible to help our students explore what they want to do after they graduate from our schools,” Superintendent Martin Plourde said.
