LYNDONVILLE — The annual Northeast Kingdom College Night for high school students and parents will be held on Monday, March 30 on the campus of Lyndon State College.
The free college fair runs from 6:30 to 8 p.m. High school sophomores, juniors, and their parents are particularly encouraged to attend to meet admissions representatives from more than 100 colleges and universities from New England and across the U.S. offering liberal arts as well as technical and business-oriented studies.
