The Gallaudet University Regional Center (GURC) at Northern Essex Community
College is thrilled to present the Northeast Transition Fair in conjunction
with 7 other host schools!  This will prove to be a fun-filled event for
deaf and hard of hearing students as well as for people interested in
knowing more about colleges and career options.

The Transition Fair is for those who are interested in knowing more about
college and career opportunities.  We will have many people from different
colleges and universities and vocational rehabilitation agencies to present
options for students wanting to find out more about life after high school.
Rehabilitation counselors for the deaf will share their knowledge about the
working world---so come on and join us as we support the students in their
endeavor for greatness/success!

Locations and dates of the Transition Fair will be held at 7 sites
