We all know what March means! It’s March Madness! The fact that the United States has a whole month dedicated to college basketball shows how important it is to the country. For Canadian athletes, it’s more difficult to be aware of the US college options available unless crucial time is taken to properly research and find out the right information. Whether you’re a high school counselor, a student, an athlete, or a parent, there’s a lot you need to know about US colleges and it can’t all be found on the internet. Thankfully, the US College Expo takes this stress of your hands by bringing some of the best sports US colleges and universities right to you. It is a free, public event where US college and university representatives provide information about scholarships, loans and finances. Some schools specialize in liberal arts, health sciences or professional degrees. There will also be schools that are actively recruiting athletes, so it is the perfect place to network.
Going to university fairs is how many Canadian athletes learned about the US schools they are attending now. With March Madness in full effect, many of you basketball players are probably wondering what schools would be the best to check out. These are currently the top 5 basketball schools in the US.
