2017 Schedule

NCTC College Discovery Day has endless opportunities for you and your faculty to recruit current high school students. 

College Fair Tour

This is your opportunity to meet every student! Our college promotional tables will be set-up in three areas: the Odell Lobby, Huggins Theatre (Odell Building) and the Cowan Lobby. Students and parents will be split into three groups and each group will cycle through your College Fair area. When each student/parent group arrives, you will have 60 seconds to introduce your program. This will be followed by networking time and then the groups will rotate and we start over again! 

Use your 60 seconds to sell your program by highlighting what makes it unique and create excitement to get students to return to your table later in the day!


Portfolio Reviews

Students in grades 9-12 will set-up portfolios for you to review. The room is free-flow, the students are stationed at tables and you roam the room and talk with each student. Students have a checklist to keep track of which schools visit their table and are directed to meet other schools at the College Fair when portfolio reviews conclude.


Watch over 100 students audition with a monologue/song and call-back students you feel will be a great fit for your program. Senior auditions run all afternoon, concurrently with auditions for grades 9-11 and portfolio reviews.

College Fair Visits

After you observe the student auditions and portfolios, and using the information they provided when registering, you will identify the students you wish to “call-back.” The students will then visit your table at the College Fair to receive more information about your program!
