For the past 24 years, the Kappas have been dedicated to providing this very special event for students looking to get a head start on their future.This year marks our 25th Annual College Fair. This Annual College Fair for high school and middle school students will be held at Romulus High School this year. We continue to expose our young people to the best colleges and universities this country offers. Last year, over 400 students attended this event and we want to increase the attendance this year. This is an opportunity for students and parents to preview colleges admissions requirements and obtain financial aid information. Students, parents, and anyone interested in learning more about college and financial aid are invited to attend.
