Annual College Fair
Science and Technology Entry Program (STEP) of New York State
invites College Representatives to attend
a College Fair at our March statewide student
conference! The College Fair will be one of the many exciting
events that will take place during the 19th Annual

2017, at the Marriott Hotel in Albany, New York—189
Wolf Road—Albany, New York 12205—(518) 458-8444.
STEP is comprised of 59 colleges and universities
across New York State, and one of its many purposes is to
provide middle and high school students with practical experience
in the scientific, technical, and health-related fields, and
to prepare students for the rigors of college and beyond.
Over 450 students and 150 program directors/advisors regularly
attend the conference. Do not miss this opportunity to share
valuable information about your institution in a forum that
captures the attention of perspective students and staff across
