Wilkes Community College will host the annual College Fair at the Walker Center on the Wilkes Campus on Wednesday, September 12, from 5 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. The college is sponsoring and hosting this event in collaboration with Wilkes County Schools. All members of the public are invited to attend.

Representatives from 52 colleges and universities will be available to speak with students and parents. The College Foundation of North Carolina (CFNC) will also be on hand to answer questions. CFNC is a free service of the State of North Carolina that helps students plan, apply, and pay for college. This is a great opportunity to gather information about programs of study, admissions, and other college-related questions.
