The University of New Hampshire Advising and Career Center will be putting on its annual Graduate and Professional School Fair next Thursday and will represent many different colleges and universities.
"We have 88 different institutions attending the fair next week – the most ever," said Nancy Hoff, a career counselor at the career center here at UNH. "Collectively they are representing hundreds and hundreds of programs of study."
Some students, like senior Bill Blanchette, that plan on going are looking for answers to questions in order to help decide whether or not to go to graduate school.
"I am going because I want to learn what different programs offer," said Blanchette, a business major looking into attending graduate school after he graduates this year. "I want to be able to choose the best program that fits my unique career path, and make sure the program I choose makes me even more qualified when I graduate."
Other students, like senior Whitney Cookson, are already in the application process and just making sure they are doing everything they need to be doing.
"I'm going to the fair because I want to make sure that I'm on track and not missing anything," said Cookson, who has already started the application process for grad school.
Hoff seems optimistic about students attending the fair next week.
"We never can 100 percent predict attendance because of variables like weather, conflicting events, et cetera," she said.
