SHS College Fair: Students get to explore options this Friday

Over 40 colleges will attend the fair this Friday

Taha Vahanvaty, Staff Writer

It’s that time of the year. The air begins to crisp, the leaves start to fall, and the overwhelming anxiety of college begins to settle in. 

For those students who are still floating aimlessly in the everlasting purgatory of the college admissions process, SHS guidance is offering a helping hand. This Friday, over 40 colleges from throughout the state will converge in our gym to help students gain a better sense of where they want to go and what they want to do for the next chapter in their lives. 

“It is ideal for students to be able to physically visit the college campus they are interested in attending,” said head guidance counselor Ms. Theresa Onody. “But if they cannot do that, attending a college fair gives them the ability to interact with someone from their college(s) of interest instead of just gathering information from their website.”

This is a great opportunity for juniors and seniors to gain a better idea of what type of college they plan on attending. For students that have no idea as to what type of college they are looking for, this is an amazing opportunity to find out more about what options exist right here in PA.

All seniors will receive a pamphlet consisting of information to help them navigate the college fair and some questions to ask the attending colleges. Seniors will also be given two raffle tickets that they can use to enter into a plethora of college swag items the colleges will be bringing. 

Seniors will be called down from their classes during 2nd period, and juniors will be called down during 3rd period.
