Annual College Night at Carl Sandburg College October 2nd

Carl Sandburg College will be hosting representatives from more than 50 colleges, universities, and vocational schools during the college’s 2017 College Night. Those who are interested in attending college but have not decided on a school are encouraged to attend.

The yearly event is expected to host around 200 perspective students inside the John M. Lewis Gymnasium on the CSC main campus in Galesburg.

Something being used again this year is a downloadable app from www.strivefair.com. “If you sign up for Strive – and it’s a free app on your phone, and you register for our fair, you punch in your information and come to the fair….you can scan the bar code from college reps you can easily send the college your information so you don’t have to stand there and fill out cards and save time,” added Mollye Craterfield, Director of Recruitment at Carl Sandburg College.

She says that with the app helping people save time by sharing information quicker, prospective students have more time to ask questions.

Admission to the fair is free – doors open at 6:00pm sharp, and lasts until 7:30pm on Monday, October 2nd.
