SERF College Fair 2020 - COVID-19 Update
The 2020 SERF College Fair scheduled to be held on Saturday, March 21
at Lincoln-Sudbury Regional High School will not be held as originally planned
due to concerns related to COVID-19. This decision was made after careful consideration of recommendations regarding large gatherings from the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention, as well as the Massachusetts Department of Public Health. We are disappointed, but feel confident this is the right decision. SERF is grateful to the many educational institutions, gap year programs, sponsors, and volunteers who came together to support and champion the College Fair. They have brought tremendous value and draw to this popular community event for 11 years and running.
SERF is excited to partner with our faithful seminar speakers to move their high interest and timely seminars to a virtual format. Stay tuned as details will be announced in the coming weeks in future blasts and on our website,'s College Fair page
