Representatives from over 175 different schools came for VBCPS’s College Night at the Virginia Beach Convention Center. Schools varied from big and small universities, colleges, military academies, and proprietary schools.

Students and their parents asked questions they had with regards to tuition, campus, student life, and majors.

The event was free and open for parents and students on Oct. 30 from 5:30-8:00 p.m.

“I don’t know what I want to do or where I want to go,” said junior Josie Burdin. “I went to see which colleges offer the fields I am particularly interested in or close to home.”
