FOR STUDENTS & FAMILIESstrivescan students

Free and open to the public, PNACAC fairs connect you with colleges and universities in one convenient location.

The fair will take place on Monday, October 4th, 2021 from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm at the Chiles Center, located on the University of Portland campus. You may park in the main parking lot located near the Chiles Center. Due to the current COVID-19 Prevention Guidelines, a limited number of people can attend the fair in the Chiles center at one time, so we ask that you be mindful of the time you spend at the event. We also ask that you limit attendees to 1 guest per student.  

Please know that for each visitor we require: 

1. Proof of a COVID-19 vaccination. We require that all visitors ages 12 and older show proof of a COVID-19 vaccination, and visitors ages 18 and over will be asked to show a photo ID (this may be a school ID). 


2. Proof of negative COVID-19 test results (PCR Preferred) within 72 hours prior to October 4th. 

Students: register in advance with StriveScan by filling out a quick form. After you sign up, StriveScan will send a barcode via text message and email. At the college fair, present your barcode to college representatives to receive more information about that college. The next day, receive an email with a report of all of the colleges and representatives you met, along with contact information and social media profiles.




RegistrationNo need to register yourself for the college fair; however, encourage your students to sign up for a barcode before they attend the fair at www.strivefair.com.
