Pasadena, CA. Are you planning to seek higher education? The Pasadena Unified School District (PUSD), held a college fair at the Pasadena Convention Center, on September 19, 2018. “PUSD’s Annual College Fair,” event garnered over 105 college representatives in attendance, with booths giving away information and brochures about said universities. You could even apply to some colleges right then and there. There were also multiple workshops giving even more information to aspiring college students. For example, there was a session guiding students on how to get scholarships that talked about what types of scholarships there are, and where you can ﬁnd them.
Spelman College was there to recruit young American women of color to attend the school in the Atlanta University Center. There were gift bags given out by Pasadena Educational Foundation to all the people in attendance, so they could bring all of their information back safely. Colleges are heavily recruiting students in the Pasadena area, as evident by the CSU Grad School Virtual Fair held on September 25, 2018.
Counselors from the California State University system made efforts to attract students.
