Over 100 colleges from around the country were represented at Rockhurst High School last night for the annual college fair. Students and parents arrived in swarms to go down the lines of schools, gather information and talk to representatives. Colleges ranged from Catholic institutions such as Saint Mary’s, big names on the East Coast such as Harvard or schools closer to STA such as UMKC.

“[The fair] was overwhelming but informational if you asked the right questions,” junior Abby Farmer said.
