The Office of Public Affairs, American Embassy will host its annual College Fair October 14-16, 2008, in Kingston. We expect the participation of several colleges from the United States, Canada, and Jamaica. The College Fair offers a unique experience for those who wish to study in the United States but who have limited knowledge about the diversity of the programs offered at these institutions.
The venue for the fair will be the Ballroom of the Hilton Kingston Hotel. The College Representatives will be available from 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon and 2:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. In addition there will be workshops specially designed for guidance counselors and sixth form coordinators who assist students in preparing for study at the tertiary level.
Students in uniform will be charged J$100.00 for admission; the general public, including parents will pay J$100.00. (Teachers will attend the fair free of charge).
