Tech College and Career Fair Offers Students the World

April 24, 2018

High school students from more than 18 schools in Westchester and Putnam counties visited the annual College and Career Fair held at the Tech Center on the Putnam | Northern Westchester BOCES campus on April 24.
Representatives from hundreds of colleges, universities, community colleges as well as the military were on hand to discuss educational and career opportunities available to students.
Mahopac High School student Casey Gruppuso found the fair to be helpful in learning new things about different school options. “There were colleges that I didn’t think I would be interested in that I discovered I am interested in after talking to the representatives,” she said. Fellow MHS student Sydney Froehlich said she was impressed with “the wide variety of schools” at the fair.
Students spoke with college representatives from schools such as Ithaca, Rutgers and Syracuse, as well as CUNY and SUNY colleges and places as far away as Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles and American College, Dublin, in Ireland.
