The Western Association for College Admission Counseling (WACAC) is pleased to announce college fairs in California and Nevada for high school students, their parents, and high school counselors. All of WACAC’s fairs are FREE to attend and include FREE parking. Come speak to representatives from over 100 colleges from all around the world.  Learn more about everything that the schools have to offer so that you can find your best-fit school.

Prior to attending a WACAC College Fair, students and parents should register for a barcode at www.StriveFair.com. Show your barcode to colleges who will scan it to easily get your information and send you more details about their school, the application process, financial aid, and important deadlines. The day after the fair, you will receive a report with information on the colleges with whom you scanned.

Step 1: Go to www.StriveFair.com and fill out the registration form. You’ll get a reminder with your barcode again two hours before the fair.

Step 2: At the fair, show this barcode to colleges. They’ll scan it to get your information.

The next day, you’ll get a report with information about all of the colleges that scanned your barcode. You’ll also start receiving information directly from the colleges.
