Archbold, Ohio – (3-8-23) Northwest State Community College hosted the Ohio Association for College Admission Counseling (OACAC) Annual College Fair on Tuesday, March 7th with a tremendous turnout in the Atrium. In total, roughly 55 colleges and universities from a four-state area welcomed over 600 area high school students at the event.


The College Fair allowed Northwest State to serve as a community convener, providing a valuable opportunity for high school students to explore their next steps in their educational journey.

Brittany Thompson, NSCC Director of Admissions, noted –

“It is important for NSCC to host this College Fair, to show area high school students some of the great opportunities that exist after graduation. We appreciate all the colleges and universities for attending. Some students may enter the workforce directly after they graduate, while others may decide to explore higher education. In each case, Northwest State is ready, willing and able to assist learners in achieving their goals.”


From the OACAC website (, OACAC “develops a list of approved college fairs on an annual basis in an effort to encourage and support collaboration between public high schools, private schools and communities.  Colleges and universities recognize this as the official list of approved college fairs so they can effectively and efficiently utilize financial and staffing resources to recruit college bound students to their respective universities.”
