District 196 College Fair on Monday, March 9

District 196 College Fair

Eastview High School will host the annual District 196 Minnesota Education Fair (MEF) on Monday, March 9th, from 4:30-6:00 p.m. 

Eastview High School will host the annual District 196 Minnesota Education Fair (MEF) on Monday, March 9th, from 4:30-6:00 p.m in the Commons. We encourage you to pass the word along to your students and wear college gear on this day.  We have fliers (attached) in the counseling office and if you’d like some for your classroom, please let me know.  More information about the college fair is below.


Attendance at the fair is free and offers a wonderful opportunity to expose yourself and your child to the myriad of post-secondary educational choices that are available in the upper Midwest.  You can gather literature, ask questions, and learn more about the options available. 

Our fair is one in a series of regional college fairs held around Minnesota to inform families about educational options after high school and it is sponsored by MACAC, the Minnesota Association for College Admission Counseling.  All grades are welcome and encouraged to attend. High school seniors who are rethinking their first college choice or still undecided about their plans for the next year can also find this event to be extremely valuable. There will be a Counselor Help table to assist throughout the event.

Evidence suggests that good planning and thorough research of various options enhance the chances of a good match between students and their post-secondary institution of choice.  We recommend you spend some time with your student prior to attending the fair and explore some of the reasons for continuing education after high school.


To save time, register your personal information before you come to the MEF, print out the barcode or have it on your phone, and bring it with you to the fair.  The barcode can be scanned at the fair by the colleges you are interested in. This allows more time for conversation with the college representative at the fair.
