Aiming at helping Latino students find the right college was the goal Friday at the Blue Cross Arena.
It's all part of the city's Hispanic Heritage Month. This is the third year for the event and it was free for middle and high schoolers, looking ahead to the next chapter in their education and letting them know there is help out there.
Albert Algarin, Latino College Fair, said, "We want to let them know there is opportunity besides high school. When I was growing up, kids were saying, 'Once I'm done with high school, I'm done. I graduated high school, I'm done, I'm good to go.' We want to show them there is more opportunity out there."
The college fair has grown so much over the last two years that they had to move it from City Hall to the Blue Cross Arena.
