Detroit Church Hosting "Super" College Fair

What’s being touted as the Motor City’s biggest college fair takes shape Wednesday morning at a Detroit church.

The Detroit Citywide Super College Fair takes place Wednesday, Nov. 10, at Greater Grace Temple. The event runs from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the church, which is located at 23500 West Seven Mile Road.

It brings together over 50 college recruiters, who can provide answers to questions on admissions, scholarships, financial aid and testing.

Representatives from historically black colleges, the University of Michigan, MSU, Purdue, Oakland Community College and other schools will be on hand.

Last year, the event attracted an estimated 3,000 students and parents.

Admission to the college fair is free.
