Are You Ready for College?

Before students graduate from high school they have a few choices that they can make. One of those choices is where they can go to college.

Luckily for Homer High students, they can get most of the information they’ll need at the school counselor’s office. They’ll have pamphlets that have information on colleges all across the country.  Also if students ask the counselors, they will tell them when some speakers will be coming to our school, to answer any questions that weren’t answered either completely or even partially in the pamphlets.

The college fair might interest both juniors and seniors, which will occur October 25th in Soldotna.  At the college fair students will find about 50 college representatives from colleges throughout the country.

Kirsten Swanson, a senior at Homer High, said that last year’s college fair helped her choose what college she wanted to go to, because she could ask the representatives questions that weren’t answered in the pamphlet.

“Kids don’t usually have the chance to get information from colleges in person, so this is a great opportunity,” said Mrs. Hampson, Homer High’s own counselor.
