While it’s only September, high school seniors across the country have already begun the process of applying to college. Whether it’s raising their ACT scores, preparing letters of recommendation, writing college application essays, or visiting college campuses, it’s a process that will consume a great deal of time during students’ final year of high school.
There is much to consider when planning one’s career path beyond high school, and choosing which college or university is the right fit for each student is a decision not to be taken lightly.
There are also students who will choose to forgo the traditional college route and will instead make the commitment to serve their country and are already weighing their options as they decide to which branch of the military they will commit. While it’s an exciting time for America’s high school seniors, it’s also a time when students must educated themselves about the different colleges, universities, and branches of the military that will best serve and meet their needs.
In an effort to assist area students in making these tough decisions, representatives from 67 colleges and the military will converge at the Wilmington High School gymnasium for the annual 2015 Clinton County College Fair on Wednesday, Sept. 23. Wilmington High School and Southern State Community College sponsor the event, which will run from 9:30 to 11 a.m.
The Clinton County College Fair is free and especially designed to assist guidance counselors, high school seniors and their families as they explore higher education and career opportunities.
