University Fair educates students on prospective colleges

A number of recruiters from over 40 universities came to El Camino College for the Spring University Fair on Thursday, March 22. They explained everything their colleges are about and everything their programs entail.

Some of the Universities that Attended were: Marymount California University, Academy of the Arts, Art Center College of Design, Otis Center College of Design, UC Irvine, and UC Riverside.

According to Natalie Walsh, Graduate Admission Counselor of Marymount California University attending Marymount allowed her to create lasting memories with other students and faculty.

“I love the lack of social tribalism,” Walsh said. “I will always be thankful for having the opportunity to connect not only with my peers but professors as well.”

Another school featured at the fair was University of California, Irvine. UCI chemistry student Mya Le Thai felt as though there were advantages to attending the university.

“[UCI] is a #1 choice for students seeking the advantages of a ‘small college feel’ within a large dynamic research university,” Thai said. “With new cutting edge academic programs, internship opportunities with top tier companies headquartered in Irvine, and a vibrant alumni community, UCI is attracting the best and brightest students from around the globe.”
