SM City Davao’s University Fair on July 7-9

SM CITY Davao’s 4th University Fair opens at the Annex on July 7. The region’s largest gathering of schools, colleges and universities will run for 3 days. An interschool cheer dancing competition will be held on July 10.

The University Fair’s inception was brought about by the need to address concerns of the graduating high school students as well as their parents regarding college education. The fair brings together some of the top universities in the country in one roof, making it convenient for parents and students alike to “shop” for schools.

“Our past University Fairs have had very good reviews. People appreciate the fact that they can learn about the programs of schools at the comfort of the mall environment. The best thing about it was that families no longer need to fly or travel to Manila, Zamboanga, Cebu or Dumaguete to inquire about the programs of say… University of Santo Tomas or Ateneo de Zamboanga or Bigfoot or Silliman University. They can simply drop by the mall and talk to the schools’ representatives,” SM City Davao mall manager Lynette Lopez shares.

This year, the University Fair will also bring the senior high and K-12 education into focus. The participating schools are expected to showcase their senior high and college programs as well as special courses.

Making a comeback this year are the Mapua Institute of Technology, De La Salle University- College of Saint Benilde, Silliman University, Sofa Design Institute, Ateneo de Davao University, University of the Philippines in Mindanao, Center for Asian Culinary Arts, Davao Doctors’ College, IChef and MOST Institute of Culinary Arts. The University of Mindanao as well as Career Academy Asia will also be joining the roster.

Apart from booths and school’s pitches, the event will also hold forums on basic education path, personal branding, alternative education and learning in the digital age. Admission to the forums is free. Interested parties may inquire about the schedule and book slots with the Marketing Department at 297.6998.
