D214 - College Fair

The 2017-2018 D214 College Fair will be held on Tuesday, April 10, 2018, from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM, in the Field House of the Forest View Educational Center (2121 S. Goebbert Rd, in Arlington Heights).

The 2016-2017 D214 College Fair was held on Tuesday, April 4, 2017, from 6:00 PM to 8:30 PM. NEW: This year the Fair was held in the Field House of the Forest View Educational Center (2121 S. Goebbert Rd., Arlington Heights).  Carpooling was encouraged (parking was allowed on Goebbert Rd. for the evening).  To view a listing of schools that confirmed their attendance for last year's fair, click here. To view a list of schools that confirmed their attendance at this year's fair, as of April 3, click HERE.  Updated lists were posted as they became available.

NEW: Students were able to register IN ADVANCE of the fair.  By registering in advance students were able to share information with the colleges in which they were interested.  Students registered at http://www.strivefair.com/.  Advance registration generated a bar code which students shared with the colleges they chose, making the time spent talking with college representatives at their tables more productive.  Registrants also received a reminder to attend the fair and a summary of the schools with which they shared their bar code. All information shared was/is confidential and will not be shared with third party vendors.  Students who registered and, later, wanted to update or change information simply re-registered and used the NEW bar code, disregarding the old bar code.
