Anne Arundel Community College advisors from a variety of departments will be available to talk with students about ways to prepare for their futures now as well as accessing the many opportunities available through the college.

Workshops with information about applying for college, preparing for success in college, getting a security clearance, and working in the public sector will also be offered at the Expo.
