Tallahassee, FL - Local high school students got to check out colleges from across the country.
The Student Union Ballroom at Tallahassee Community College was packed wall-to-wall Monday, as around 45 colleges and universities were represented at a college fair.
Hundreds of high school students and their parents were on hand to learn about their options when it comes to a higher education.
Aricka Tucker, a senior at Florida High, says, "I want to be successful in life and job opportunities are getting smaller and smaller. So, I just want to get a start."
Brian Lockwood attended with his 11th grade son. Lockwood says, "I'm trying to find what to do and when and see all the different schools. I don't know exactly the process, but, I know it's long and involved. I don't want to find out a year from now we should've been doing this instead of that. That's why we wanted to come here and take advantage of this great opportunity."
The college fair was from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Organizers say it was the first of its kind in five years.
