Aspen Times staff report
Aspen, CO Colorado

Pat SudmeierSunday's Western Slope College Fair at Aspen High School provides an opportunity for students and parents to research various schools, all in one location.

ASPEN – Aspen High will be much more than a school for ninth through 12th graders when the Western Slope College Fair comes to town on Sunday.

With an expected crowd of more than 1,500 students and parents from some 60 Western Slope high schools, the sixth annual fair promises to bring together kids and university representatives for a glimpse into the future.

Congressman John Salazar and state Sen. Gail Schwartz will attend the fair to officially open it.

The more than 200 colleges, universities and technical schools in attendance will offer students information specific to the schools, answer questions about degrees and programs offered, and explain application processes and requirements. In addition, workshops will be offered on “Admissions at Highly Selective Colleges,” “The College-Bound Student-Athlete,” “Financial Aid for All (in Spanish and English)” and “The College Search; Finding the College That is Right for YOU.”

According to organizers, Sunday’s event is the largest college exhibition on the Western Slope. As such, it provides a unique opportunity for all Western Slope students and their parents to research a variety of schools all in one location.

The Western Slope College Fair is Sunday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Aspen High School. For more information, visit http://www.westernslopecollegefair.com.
