College & Career Night

College & Career Night Highlights Video

Video highlighting the annual College & Career Night at the OC Fair and Event Center. Closed Captions are available. 

About the Event

The Newport-Mesa Unified School District’s College and Career Night is an annual event that allows 7th-12th grade students exclusive access to hundreds of college representatives and the chance to explore careers in a variety of fields. Between their studies, extra-curricular activities, part-time jobs, and the day-to-day of being a high school student, often students do not have many opportunities to gain knowledge and insight about their future paths. This one night “expo-style” event is a fantastic way for students and families to become informed and inspired about post-grad options.

All levels of higher education will be present: private and public colleges/universities, community colleges, career technical education/trade schools, as well as the military branches. After walking around the 36,000 sq. ft. fair consider dropping in to one of the informative presentations! Learn about important college and career related topics at presentations running throughout the event.
