College and Vocational Invitational Fair This Saturday
The City of Temecula will be hosting its annual College and Vocational Invitational Fair this Saturday, September 26 from 10:00am – 2:00pm at the Promenade Mall in Temecula.
This event is an opportunity to allow current high school students to find out information about a variety of post-high school educational options. This year’s Invitational will attract almost 200 colleges, universities, vocational schools, military institutions, military branches, and educational programs.
The purpose of this annual event is to bring together a diverse array of higher education opportunities that will give high school students the chance to explore the different avenues available to them locally and nationally.
There will be hundreds of booths set up throughout the upper floor of the Promenade Mall. Students can talk to representatives and acquire valuable information on the colleges and future educational possibilities they might be interested in.
Representatives will have information about their colleges and programs so its a great idea to come to the Invitational prepared with questions that pertain to what you want out of a college or program.
Many of the presenters will have postcards for you to fill out so the college or program can send you valuable information that will help you decide on what college or program you want to apply or pursue after you graduate from high school.

- University of California colleges
UC Berkeley; UC Davis; UC Irvine; UCLA; UC Merced; UC Riverside; UC San Diego; UC Santa Barbara; UC Santa Cruz
