35th USHLI National Conference

National College Fair

USHLI is proud to announce its nationally acclaimed Career & College Recruitment Fair in downtown Chicago, which serves as the official launch of our 2017 Student Leadership Series (SLS) and the 35th USHLI National Conference. The goal of our SLS is to ensure that every child has an opportunity to obtain the level of education that is consistent with his or her maximum potential and the opportunity to be successful in life and career. Arguably one of the largest college fairs in the nation, USHLI continues to receive feedback from recruiters, counselors and students praising our college recruitment fair not only for its quantity but for its quality as well. In 2017, we are expecting over 3,000 high school students from the Chicagoland area and 2000 college students, young professionals and mid career professionals from 40 states to attend.
