Lutheran College Fairs Set for Fall 2003

     CHICAGO (ELCA) -- Most of the colleges and universities of
the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) will
participate in "Lutheran College Fair" programs at 15 locations
in 11 states this fall. The purpose of the fairs is to connect
Lutheran college representatives with prospective students and
their families.
     The Lutheran College Fair program is coordinated through the
Lutheran Educational Conference of North America (LECNA), Sioux
Falls, S.D., an association of more than 40 Lutheran colleges and
universities in the United States and Canada.	LECNA, formed in
1910, encourages, assists and promotes cooperation among Lutheran
colleges and universities.
     The 28 colleges and universities affiliated with the ELCA
are members of LECNA.  Admissions, financial aid, college life
and academic areas of study are among the topics college
officials will discuss with prospective students at each fair
     In addition to meeting with Lutheran college
representatives, most fairs include a reception and a series of
educational workshops about college financial planning and
careers.  Lutheran college fairs will be held in other parts of
the United States in spring 2004.
