FOR RELEASE
2006-09-20
Huntington, Ind.—The North American Coalition for Christian Admission Professionals will hold a national Christian college fair in Fort Wayne, Ind. The fair, to be held on Oct. 5 at Emmanuel Community Church from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., will be hosted by Huntington University. Approximately 30 other Christian colleges and universities from across North America will be present to answer questions and provide information to students and parents.

“This is a great opportunity to have a number of Christian colleges from all over the region and beyond come to one location and have their representatives available to prospective students and their families,” said Chant Thompson, executive director of NACCAP. “The format for the fair is such that those in attendance may talk to whichever school or schools they choose.”

Parents and students will be able to attend sessions designed to inform them on the financial aid process. One session will be held at 6:45 p.m., with a second session at 7:45 p.m.

“The financial aid workshops available during the fair are held so that parents can pick up the latest information on making the whole college experience feasible and affordable,” Thompson said. “This year, senior students will also have the opportunity to register to win a $500 NACCAP scholarship.”

NACCAP headquarters ranked the 2005 Fort Wayne fair first out of 100. Each fair is ranked on overall attendance, number of colleges and universities that sign up and overall satisfaction of attendees.
