It’s that time of year again, colleges are visiting North. Thye are here to talk to and inform students interested in their schools.
“You actually get to talk to people who’ve been there, who are alumni or who work there, that knows information about the school,” Senior Melanie Wilson said.
When colleges visit North, it cuts down on a lot of work the students have to do during their college quest.
“I think it helps students streamline their college visits so they are able to narrow down their choices.” College and Career Counselor Tom Daugherty said.
The program allows students to ask about their majors, student life, scholarships, and the school in general.
“I hope the students receive all of the general information about the college [so they can] see if that’s a school they’d be interested in,” Daugherty said. “I would also hope they’d get any questions answered by the representative, and I’d hope that they’d be able to ask to get on that college’s mailing list.”
To get out of class and attend a presentation, students need to sign up in the Guidance Office. On the day of the visit, swing by guidance in the morning and ask for a pass.
“[Students should] get an application and any other paperwork they may need,” Daugherty said. “I’d hope they’d develop a personal relationship with the college through the representative.”
Juniors and seniors, make sure to regularly check the school’s website. It will give you updates on when the colleges are coming.
