Hopefully many of you have had a chance to explore this website.  Not only will you find scholarship information, but you will also find ACT, FAFSA and college event information just to name a few things.

College events are happening all the time.  You can attend tours, overnight visits even college fairs to get you prepared for college.

For example, SUU has an event called Red Riot Overnight.”  Students considering SUU as their college should really take a weekend and go do this fun overnight stay.  You get to stay in a dorm, tour the campus, attend fun events, free swag and t-shirts and they even feed you dinner and breakfast.  $25 dollars is the total cost.

Another important event coming up on September 25, is the RMACAC College Fair being held at the Rice Eccles Stadium at the University of Utah.  Colleges from all over will come with advisors to show you what their school has to offer.  They will have financial aid and scholarship information available for you.  Plus, you get lots of fun swag for attending!  This is a free event.
