East Feliciana High School held its fall college and career fair on Sept. 19 in the school's gymnasium in Jackson.

The event provided students in eighth- through 12-grade the opportunity to browse and collect information provided by various colleges and universities as well as business and industry representatives from around the state.

Seniors used the opportunity to meet with public and private schools regarding admission, scholarships, housing and campus tour opportunities.

Thirty-eight institutions were represented at the fair, including LSU, Southern, Southeastern, BRCC, the University of Louisiana at Monroe and Dillard and Xavier universities.

Throughout the 2016-17 school year, East Feliciana High plans to host several events to ensure every student graduates from high school ready for college or a career, district officials said.
