|Meet Avrum Gudelsky Scholarship Recipient Robert Binick|
College fairs are intimidating. Dozens of booths, hundreds of admissions counselors and countless wide-eyed students weaving through a crowded auditorium trying to find the perfect school.
But amid the chaos of college applications, concerned parents and degree pamphlets, Robert Binick found Capitol College.
"There was a real connection with the Capitol staff members right away at the college fair," Binick said. "When I visited campus I started talking to a few professors and I sat in on an engineering class. This was definitely where I wanted to go."
