The University of Nebraska at Omaha Sapp Fieldhouse will house the Omaha Area College Fair next Sunday.

College-bound students can get face time with representatives from about 100 colleges during the Omaha Area College Fair. It’s Sunday, April 14, from 1 to 3 p.m. at the University of Nebraska at Omaha’s Sapp Fieldhouse, 60th and Dodge Streets. Admission is free.

The college fair is sponsored by the EducationQuest Foundation in partnership with Omaha-area school counselors and the Nebraska Association of College Registrars and Admissions Officers.

Here are three tips to “ace” the college fair experience:

» Visit nebraskacollegefairs.org to register for a barcode you can print or download to your phone and take to the fair. College reps will scan the barcode so you won’t have to complete information cards.

» Arrive early so you have time to visit all of your top colleges.

» Prepare some questions. Ask about deadlines for admission, scholarships and financial aid applications.
