Port Angeles College Fair set Tuesday at school

Peninsula Daily News

PORT ANGELES — More than 30 college representatives will provide information during the Port Angeles High School College Fair on Tuesday.

The fair will be from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in the main gymnasium at the school at 304 E. Park Ave.

“It should provide a wonderful opportunity for our students to speak with college representatives one-on-one,” said Mike Nolan, guidance counselor.

“In addition to getting questions answered, students should come away with a sense of whether or not a particular college is a good fit for them.

“That’s what we’re after. They are all good schools. Which one is the right fit?”

Parents are welcome at the fair. All three high school counselors will be on hand to meet individually with parents.

“We are also planning to have a representative there to talk about college ROTC programs, as well as someone to go over financial aid and scholarship notebooks,” Nolan said.


Four-year college representatives are expected from the Art Institute of Seattle, Central Washington University, The Evergreen State College, Gonzaga University, Linfield College, Northwest Indian College, Northwest University, Pacific Lutheran University, Seattle Pacific University, Saint Martin’s University, University of Idaho, University of Victoria, University of Washington, Washington State University, Western Washington University, Whitworth University and Willamette University.

Representatives of two-year colleges are expected from Peninsula College, which is based in Port Angeles, and from Cottey College, a private woman’s college in Nevada, Mo.

Career and technical school representatives are expected from the Academy of Interactive Entertainment, the lineman apprenticeship program of the Clallam County Public Utility District, DigiPen, the Fashion Institute of Design and Manufacturing, Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, ITT Technical Institute, Le Cordon Bleu, Seattle Maritime Academy, Toni & Guy hairdressing academy and Washington Aerospace Training & Research Center.

Representatives of the Army, Air National Guard, Marines and Navy also are expected to attend.
