The event now features a timesaving feature: pre-registration barcodes. In past years, aisles could sometimes be glutted with students and parents filling out information cards to leave with colleges. Students are now asked to fill out a brief questionnaire ahead of the event at http://www.gotocollegefairs.com to receive a personal barcode. When they find colleges at the event that pique their interest, students can quickly transfer their contact information by having a personal barcode scanned.

Henrico Schools will also host a separate event, the Life-Ready Expo, on Oct. 22 from 6-9 p.m. The Expo will be held at the Advanced Career Education Center at Hermitage, 8301 Hungary Spring Road, Henrico, Va. It will provide students in grades 7-12 with information about a variety of paths to careers and education, and offer students a chance to talk with employers about job opportunities.
