“College Signing Day is an exciting way to get local students enrolled and ready for their first year as a Green River Gator,” Fuega said.

Representatives from across campus will participate in the resource fair, answering questions ranging from financial aid and student government, to athletics and student clubs.

The event is sponsored by the Welcome Center, Career and Advising Center, and Outreach and Recruitment.
