DURANT, Okla. (KTEN) — Hundreds of high school students jammed the Southeastern Oklahoma State University campus Tuesday for a Texoma area-wide college admissions fair.

Thirty public and private universities were represented at the fair, including large schools like the University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University

"We think it's really important for not only students to get a flavor of what Southeastern would be like, but all of our great colleges and universities in our area," said SOSU President Dr. Thomas Newsom. "We're excited to provide that service."

Students got the chance to talk with college representatives and explore their options beyond high school, both at SOSU and at other institutions.

"I was looking at Carl Albert, Southeastern, OSU, OU... just pretty much all of them," said Tushka High School student Landon Griffin. "I'd like to play baseball somewhere."

SOSU said almost 1,000 students from 27 high schools attended this year's fair, hosted annually on the university's campus.

"We have a lot of schools that have bussed students in from the area high schools and certainly from the State of Oklahoma and the State of Texas," said SOSU's enrollment manager Shelly Key. "We have a great turnout this year."

The fair was organized by the Great Plains Association for College Admissions Counseling.
