College and Career Night: One-stop shopping for your future


Students will have a chance to consider a host of options for life after high school at Henrico County Public Schools’ 2016 College and Career Night. The annual countywide event offers a chance to talk with representatives of more than 150 colleges and universities, professional programs, businesses and branches of the military.

Last year’s event also saw the introduction of a timesaving feature: pre-registration barcodes.

In past years, aisles could sometimes be glutted with students and parents filling out information cards to leave with colleges. Students are now asked to fill out a brief questionnaire ahead of the event at to receive a personal barcode. When they find colleges at the event that pique their interest, students can quickly transfer their contact information by having a personal barcode scanned.

When: Wednesday, Nov. 2 from 6-8 p.m.
Where: Douglas S. Freeman High School, 8701 Three Chopt Road, Henrico, Va. 23229
