Please note that these fairs are automated, which means that many of the college representatives will have scanners. Students who register at GoToCollegeFairs.com can print out a bar code they can bring with them to the fair, which colleges can scan, rather than filling out information cards at each table. If students will be attending more than one automated fair this fall, they only need to register once and can select multiple fairs. College reps will still have information cards available for students who don't bring a bar code.
