Manning a Booth at a College Fair is DIFFICULT

over at the convention center, so it was close by πŸ™‚ There were about 250 other schools in attendance, and thousands of high school students and their families. I was sent as the representative for the Caltech booth by the admissions office…and I was so nervous! I had never done a COLLEGE FAIR before, though they assured me it would be like answering questions and giving information about Caltech. Here I am headin’ in–I was SUPER NERVOUS at this point…don’t want to disappoint these high school kids.

I set up my booth with lots of information for people to pick-up….it was nearly all gone by the end of the night!
