Many of us at Wyoming High School can already see graduation around the corner, but a certain obstacle is still in our way: choosing the right college. As FAFSA and application forms are filled out, many seniors are still undecided on where to continue their education in the next few years, mostly due to the fact that they have not visited any campuses. Well, it’s time to listen to Mr. Robrahn during the morning announcements, because November is the time of college trips, and we have some big ones coming our way!

 

For those who don’t know, a college advisor works at the school and plans these trips for us. Ms. Young can be found in the counseling office area, and she can help answer any questions you have about the big steps after May 21st. When she’s not doing this 24/7, she plans trips like the one to Ferris State University from last week, and three more are approaching in November. Clear your schedules for November 6th, 8th, and 19th because these days will be trips to GVSU, WMU, and MSU (in that order). They will be fun and allow for you to see what campus life will be like at a bigger university. But, I am required to tell you to plan ahead with your teachers so you don’t fall behind in class. Let’s face it, missing a bell ringer or two isn’t that life-threatening, but you want your transcript to look especially nice during senior year.

 

For those who can’t make time during these days, don’t worry! College representatives come to the high school every week to give you the best feedback they can from your questions. As of right now, there are still 20 schools this fall coming in, with the first being Eastern Michigan on Halloween. I do recommend that you still try to attend these as well because Ms. Young made sure that every type of school is coming in. There will be a medical school, there will be a cosmetology school, there will be a technical school. If you want to know more, then stop by Ms. Young’s office.

 

Don’t let college frighten you, it’s just another path that will lead you towards that dream job you’ve always wanted. Take the time to visit schools without your High School buddies, so you can see what it will be like without them. Take the time to do research to find what schools even have the program you want to join. You know what? Take the time to find your new home for the next 4 or 6 or who knows how many years. Make this college ride your own, and remember that help is always right there in Ms. Young’s office if you need it.
