CSU holds free college fair for high school students

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - One local university held an event Tuesday night to help high school students decide what they want to do after graduation.

Columbus State University hosted their second annual Probe College Fair at the Cunningham Center.

The goal was to have students meet with more than 60 colleges and universities around the southeast to learn a little bit more and try to map out their next step after high school.

Both two-year and four-year colleges partciapted in the event.

"This is really important because students need to start planning early to know really what their options are and to find the best fit for them both socially, emotionally as well as fiscally," said Amy Clines, Director of Undergraduate Recruitment. "So this is a really good opportunity for students to have that opportunity to research the different institutions and get to meet some of the folks they'll be working with throughout the college search process."

Organizers expected more than 600 people to attend the night's event.
