Sponsored by The China Press and McDonald's, the China Press Los Angeles Education Exposition is held on May 21, 2011 at Rosemead Center. The Exposition aims to enhance and coordinate flow of information about college admissions, financial aid, and study skills to Chinese American residents and their college-bound children in San Gabriel Valley.
With a clear mission to better serve the local community, the China Press Los Angeles Education Exposition is a non-commercial event and will be open to the public without charge. Over fifteen informative seminars and workshops on college application, standardized test preparation, college study skills, and college education financial planning are scheduled to give attendees a panoramic walk-through of the application process and help more local students have a smooth transition from high school to college.
The China Press Los Angeles Education Exposition provides opportunities for students to have face-to-face meetings with admission officers from eight major higher education institutions in Southern California (UCLA, UC Irvine, California State University Los Angeles, Pasadena City College, East Los Angeles College, Los Angeles Harbor College, and Los Angeles Valley College). Parents and their college-bound children get access to the most authoritative sources of information about admissions criteria, college life, and career planning from the attending school representatives. The Exposition also provides free SAT and PSAT Practice Test to students above 9th and 7th grade, respectively. The College Board's educational manager in Southern California is also invited to participate in the event and make a keynote speech.
