High school juniors and seniors, along with Amarillo College students who aspire to transfer to a university, will have access to a smorgasbord of outstanding higher-education offerings at the 2021 Amarillo Area Night College Fair.


Approximately 50 colleges and universities from across the state and the nation have been invited to attend the event, from 6-8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 19 at Amarillo Independent School District’s newest campus – AmTech Career Academy.


Amarillo College and West Texas A&M University are co-sponsoring the College Fair in partnership with AmTech, which is located at 3601 Plains Blvd.


“This is open to juniors and seniors, their families, and any of our students who are interested in transferring from AC,” said Cassie Montgomery, AC’s director of outreach services.


“We’ve received confirmations from Texas schools like Texas Tech, Texas A&M and SMU, and from some amazing universities outside our state, like Penn State, Alabama and University of Southern California. All these schools and more will have representatives at this fair to answer any questions people have.”


AC and WTAMU organized the College Fair through their mutual connections to the Texas Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers, which helps coordinate informational and recruitment events across the state.
