Tri-Cities to host National Christian College Fair
MILLIGAN COLLEGE, TN (October 4, 2002) – Local high school students and their parents will have a unique opportunity to visit with representatives from nearly 30 Christian colleges at the National Christian College Fair on October 17 at Providence Academy in Johnson City. The Tri-Cities region is one of 80 cities nationwide to host the national fair, sponsored by the National Association of Christian College Admissions Personnel (NACCAP).
“It’s incredible to have this many colleges from throughout the United States gathered in one location,” said David Mee, vice president for enrollment management at Milligan and regional coordinator for the southeast portion of the National Christian College Fairs circuit. “This is ideal for local families to learn about these institutions without having to travel all over the U.S.”
Local institutions in attendance will include Milligan and King colleges. Others represented will be Anderson College (SC), Anderson University (IN), Asbury, Boyce, Bryan, Campbell University, Campbellsville University, Charleston Southern, Covenant, Cumberland, Emmanuel, Erskine College, Evangel, Free Will Baptist, Gardner-Webb, Gordon, Lee University, LeTourneau, Liberty, North Greenville, Palm Beach Atlantic, Philadelphia/Bible, Southeastern College, Tennessee Temple, Toccoa Falls, Trevecca Nazarene and Union University.
“On the surface, most small colleges look a lot alike. They promise a strong academic program, varied co-curricular offerings, a pleasant campus and a friendly faculty. What sets Christ-centered colleges apart is their ‘value added’ educational environment: the way in which faith, learning, and life come together,” said Mee, who serves on the board of NACCAP.
NACCAP is a professional organization of Christian college admissions officers which encourages member institutions toward quality in admissions procedures, integrity in the recruiting process, and responsibility in communication with prospective students and families.
Mee said that the October 17 fair in Johnson City will include a financial aid workshop and is an event that families with college-bound students should be sure to attend.
The National Christian College Fair will take place October 17 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. at Providence Academy at Mountain View Baptist Church on the Bristol Highway in north Johnson City.
