BRYAN, Texas (KBTX) -It’s never too early to start thinking about and preparing for your future. That’s why counseling teams from the Bryan and College Station Independent School Districts hosted a College & Career Night.

The free event Monday night was at the Brazos Center in Bryan. The purpose of the event is to prepare students for all the post-secondary options that are available to them after graduation.

Representatives from over 60 colleges, universities, technical schools, armed forces, college prep programs, tutorial services, and the Texas Workforce will be on hand to provide information for both students and their families.

Financial Aid sessions were also offered for parents who are interested in learning more about federal aid.

Though the event is being organized by Bryan and College Station ISDs the fair was open to students in surrounding districts and private schools.

“Anywhere from ninth to 12th graders. Come in and see you might find something that ‘hey I never even thought about ‘that’ or ‘this is what I have to do to go to college’ just to get people to start thinking about what those next steps are,” BISD Director of Counseling Services, Donna Willett, said.

A financial aid presentation began at 6 p.m. followed by a presentation to first-generation college families at 6:45 p.m. and a question and answer session on financial aid at 7:20 p.m.
