Arlington, VA—College-bound students interested in music, dance, theater, visual arts, graphic design, and other related disciplines are invited to learn more about undergraduate and graduate degrees offered in their area of interest at the National Association for College Admission Counseling’s (NACAC) Houston Performing and Visual Arts College Fair. The event will be held on Tuesday, October 17, at Rice University – Rice Memorial Center. The fair — which is free and open to the public — will run from 6:30 p.m. to 8:.30 p.m. Although a growing number of students are pursuing college degrees in music, theater, art, dance, visual arts, graphic design and writing, few resources exist for artistically inclined students as they plan their college careers. NACAC’s Performing and Visual Arts College Fairs, offered in 25 locations throughout the country, fill that gap by providing attendees a chance to learn about educational opportunities tailored to their needs. Students have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with admission representatives from colleges, universities, conservatories, studios, festivals, and other educational institutions with specialized programs in the arts. Information about financial aid, portfolio days, and audition and entrance requirements, will also be available. More than 20,000 students attend NACAC’s Performing and Visual Arts College Fairs annually. This fall’s new locations include Cleveland, Charlotte, Kansas City, and Phoenix. For more information about the fair, including a full schedule of participating schools, fields of study for each school in attendance, pre-fair informational sessions, and student registration information visit: https://www.nacacfairs.org/pva/ Students are encouraged to register before the event.
