Are you about to attend a college fair or meet the admissions representative at your school? Don’t forget the rules of good etiquette. Just like learning about table manners, proper introductions, and social graces, there are some things you can do to make your experience as successful as possible.
Begin by introducing yourself to the person behind the table. A firm handshake and a smile will go a long way. Ask them questions about their school’s admissions policies, academics, and activities if you are one-on-one with the representative. If there is a large group of people at the table, he or she may choose to give an overview of the institutions information to the group. You may hear the answer to your questions over a 15 minute period and save both you and the representative time and effort. Read on for more rules of college fair etiquette.
