Edison Hosts College Fair at Darke County Campus

To help students and parents through the college selection process, Edison Community College will be hosting a college fair on Wednesday, March 12, from 6 – 8 p.m. at the Darke County Campus in Greenville.

Finding the right school can be an overwhelming task. Factors such as size, location, and cost all have a major impact on a student’s decision of where they will attend college and how successful they will be.

Colleges and universities from Ohio and Indiana will be at Edison’s Darke County Campus to talk with students, parents and guidance counselors about opportunities in higher education. Advisors and representatives will be able to address questions regarding courses, tuition, job placement rates for majors, accreditation, the transfer process, and more.

“Being able to visit with area colleges all in one place is a great advantage for students and parents to become more informed about the opportunities available to them,” said Tracy Wheeler, College Bound Advisor.

Some of the highlighted schools attending this year’s college fair will be, Bowling Green State University, Indiana University East, International College of Broadcasting, Ohio State University, Bluffton University, and more.

The college fair is made possible through a partnership between Edison’s College Bound program, Bridges to College and Greenville City Schools.

Edison’s College Bound program is funded by a grant from TG. TG promotes educational access and success so that students can realize their college and career dreams. As a non-profit corporation, TG offers resources to help students and families plan and prepare for college, learn the basics of money management, and repay their federal student loans.

Bridges to College is a non-profit organization that provides services to Ansonia and Greenville High School students and their parents. The organization is based on the principle of a prosperous local economy and future high quality of life in Darke County. This is the first event in which Edison has focused solely on Darke County students to create college awareness.

Edison Community College will also be highlighting its more than 30 associate’s degrees and one-year certificate programs, designed to help students transfer to four-year colleges and universities or help launch a professional career. An additional room will also be available to assist prospective students and parents with questions concerning financial resources. For more information regarding the College Fair, visit
