The Future Educators Association National Conference is a unique, annual celebration of inspired, aspiring educators. Each year, conference participants come from around the world to take advantage of a diverse array of networking and professional learning opportunities. Consider becoming College Day participant and capture the attention of more than 800 high school prospective educators and their instructors.

Since many of the FEA conference attendees are interested in learning more about teacher education programs at colleges and universities, the Future Educators Association started its College Day event several years ago to allow colleges and universities to connect directly with students.

College Day is similar to a college fair. This is an excellent opportunity to attract to your school’s education program high-quality students who have expressed an interest in education careers.

By reserving a College Day table at the 2015 FEA National Conference, you will:

  • Enhance your visibility among more than 800 of the best and brightest high school students in the country who are interested in education-
    related careers, as well as their instructors.
  • Cultivate name recognition among prospective educators and education preparation instructors from across the country.
  • Demonstrate your support of the future of education.
  • Contribute to the advancement of the education field.

College Day tables will be located in the Independence Center on the Independence Level of the Hyatt Regency Crystal City in the same area where registration and merchandise sales take place. Vendors will have prime visibility throughout conference events. Exhibits will be open on Friday, April 24, from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
