Ten`college fairs` planned

Ten “Lutheran college fairs” are planned for this fall at various sites around the country.

Representatives of Lutheran colleges and universities nationwide — including those of The Lutheran Church–Missouri Synod’s Concordia University System — will be at the fairs to share information and answer questions.  Most of the fairs also offer workshops on college planning and financial aid.

Sponsored by the Lutheran Educational Conference of North America (LECNA), the college fairs are designed primarily for high-school sophomores and juniors, along with their parents.  Funding the fairs are LECNA-member schools and Thrivent Financial for Lutherans.
