The Tri-University College Fair


Many students at ACP are nearing their final years of high school, or are already in their senior year. With this in mind, the search for the “perfect college” is in session. To help, Erie has organized a beneficial and obliging college fair to help students look at some of their in-state options.

ASU, located in the college town of Tempe, is home to Sparky the Sun Devil.

On Thursday, August 15th, Arizona State University (ASU), Northern Arizona University (NAU), and The University of Arizona (UofA) will be at the Chandler Center for the Arts at 6:00 P.M. Doors open at 5:30 for seating.

7:00-7:20 ~ Break-out Session 2

7:30-7:50 ~ Break-out Session 3

A Little Info About the Universities…

Northern Arizona University sits in the pine-covered city of Flagstaff.

Here in the valley, ASU and the Sun Devils dominate most of Tempe and Phoenix. Arizona State University was established in 1885 and is the largest out of the three colleges, not to mention the most popular. It is ranked #1 in the US for innovation and has more than 800 national student scholars. It has more than 40 elite programs, which are all ranked in the top 25 in the United States.

Up north in the cool pines of Flagstaff, Northern Arizona University sits in the city center with a refreshing view of the San Francisco Peaks.  Nestled in the heart of Flagstaff, NAU is home to the Lumberjacks. With 15 research centers, the university is widely recognized as a higher-research institution. In fact, they recently reached #201 in the National Science Foundation national research rankings.

A little ways south, in the home of the Wildcats, Tucson is home to the University of Arizona. The first college established in Arizona (which was then known as the Arizona Territory), it is recognized as a global leader and brings more than $684 million dollars in research investment annually. A member of the Association of American Universities, the University of Arizona creates real-world ready students though their 100% engagement initiative.

If you really want to find out more about Arizona’s leading universities, attend the college fair on Thursday night! Students and their families are encouraged to go. We hope to see you there!
