27 College Fairs Why do we go? To make a connection with students and parents. To increase the recognition of MSU What are our Goals? To have students fill out and information card. To answer their questions. To get students to visit our campus. To get them to complete an application.

28 Situational Training 1. A family approaches the table. The prospective student is behind the parents, completely uninterested texting, etc. One parent states that the student is interested in business. The other parent chimes in and states that the student is interested in math instead. What would you do?

29 Situational Training 2. A tentative student walks up to the table. They pick up a brochure, skims through it and just lingers around the table. The student doesn t ask questions and say that they don t have anything to ask. What would you do?

30 Situational Training 3. A student approaches the table and states that they like what Montclair has to offer, for the most part. The only thing is that the student comes from a smaller school setting, and they are looking for that in a college. MSU just seems to be too large. What would you do?

31 Situational Training 4. A parent asks: Why is your school better than William Paterson or Rutgers? What would you do?
