The fourteenth annual College Quest, a college information night, will take place on Monday, September 23rd, at the Simpson University Heritage Life Center from 5:00 to 8:00pm. This free community event is open to everyone, but specifically designed for north state high school students and their families to explore higher education opportunities.

College Quest will feature booths from over 50 colleges and universities. Recruiters will be on hand to showcase their academic programs and provide students with admission information. Attendees can learn about degree options, costs of attending, and accreditation. There will also be free workshops presented by College OPTIONS staff covering financial aid information at 5:30pm, 6:15pm and 7:00pm.

Becky Nail, College Quest Committee Member from College OPTIONS said, “The overall goal of College Quest is to bring a wealth of college resources and representatives to our community. We hope that students and parents will take advantage of this free event in order to get their questions answered and gain knowledge about different career pathways, college entrance requirements, financial aid and more.”

College Quest is part of a tour network, coordinated by statewide organizations. The Redding event is planned and sponsored by representatives from College OPTIONS, ScholarShare California’s 529 College Savings Plan, Shasta College, Shasta Union High School District, Simpson University, National University, and the Shasta County Office of Education.
