Amador Valley High School held its annual College Fair on Mar. 9 in the Multipurpose Room. The fair gave students the opportunity to speak to representatives from many different colleges about their future.

“I was interested in talking to schools about my future education. I plan to attend a 4 year university so it was cool to get the opportunity to see what each school offers and how they differ,” said Max Couper (‘24).

The representatives were open to answering many different questions from interested students. They wanted to showcase the university that they are associated with. They introduced unique aspects of their colleges to potential students.

“I want to introduce Washington state to students who are looking to expand their educational horizons outside of California. We are trying to showcase the university and maybe give students the idea to apply,” said Washington State Admissions Counselor Jose Pablo Villalobos.

Students were trying to see if they could picture themselves attending the selected college. They asked about what majors schools offered and what the campus and surrounding areas are like.

“I wanted to see what different colleges were like, every place offers something different so I just want to explore schools and see which one is the right choice for me,” said Alex Moreno (‘24).

Different levels of colleges made an appearance at the college fair. There were selective schools and not so selective schools that students could look at.

“I was excited to see that the University of Arizona was at the college fair. I think that school would be really interesting for me. They have a really good business program that I want to look into. They also have a really good basketball program and going to football games could be a fun experience,” said Couper.
