“The Michiana Spring College fair is a chance for local high school students to connect with college representatives from a variety of regional colleges and universities. Students often gain a greater desire to pursue further education by attending college fairs. This year’s fair is going to be a great resource for all local high school students,” says Bethel College Admission Counselor Tom Carpenter.
