  • An Arts Camp student speaks with a representative from a college.

Interlochen Center for the Arts will host a performing and visual arts college fair on Monday, July 22 from 1 - 3 p.m. in the Dennison Center for Recreation and Wellness.

Approximately 100 colleges and conservatories will be in attendance to speak with college-bound high school students who are interested in pursuing higher education in the areas of music, dance, theatre, visual arts, creative writing, and motion picture arts, as well as other arts-related disciplines.

“Choosing a college can be a difficult process, and students who are considering a post-secondary focus within the performing and visual arts will face a distinct set of challenges,” said Chad Gapinski, academic and college counselor at Interlochen Center for the Arts. “This college fair brings dozens of arts programs from across the country to our region to help students find the best educational fit for them and the resources to attain their goals.“

The event is open to the public, and admission is free. See below for a full list of schools in attendance.
