In an effort to encourage many colleges to come to meet the dedicated student-athletes, the CPI charges a minimal fee to colleges and universities to attend the CPI Horse Show. Tables and chairs in a sheltered area of the CPI College Expo are provided for all attending schools. Colleges are encouraged to decorate their tables with banners, awards, and table-top displays. At the college, expo colleges have a chance to meet student-athletes and their families and distribute information about the degrees offered at their school, their equestrian team, barn facility, admissions procedures, and available scholarships. The college expo is open to CPI athletes and spectators alike.
