The University of Cincinnati welcomes the National Association for College Admission Counseling’s (NACAC) Cincinnati Performing and Visual Arts College Fair on Tuesday, October 11, 2011. The fair runs from 7 – 9 p.m. in the Great Hall at Tangeman University Center. The event is free and open to the public.

The fair features a large variety of colleges, universities, conservatories, studios, festivals and other educational institutions with specialized programs in the visual and performing arts. Attendees will have the chance to meet one-on-one with admission representatives and learn about educational opportunities, admission and financial aid, portfolio days, audition and entrance requirements, and much more.

While plenty of information is available for college-bound students with traditional interests, not as many resources exist for those who are artistically inclined. NACAC’s Performing and Visual Arts College Fairs fill a vital need for the growing number of students pursuing college degrees in music, theater, art, dance, visual arts, graphic design and writing. These fairs offer a unique opportunity to get the inside scoop on what it takes to obtain a degree in the arts.

More than 20,000 students attend NACAC’s Performing and Visual Arts College Fairs annually. This fall, NACAC will sponsor Performing and Visual Arts Fairs in 19 locations throughout the country, including New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Washington DC, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Las Vegas and debuting New Orleans for 2011.

Tickets & Parking Information
Admission to the NACAC fair is free and open to the public. Parking is available in the CCM Garage (at the base of Corry Boulevard off of Jefferson Avenue) and additional garages throughout the UC campus.
