The Senior Class Applies to College

September 02, 2018

The Senior Class Applies to College 
By Paige Moore

On September 12, 2018, the senior class took a period to apply to colleges. Counselor Mrs. Jennifer Kappel started out by telling the students the basics of applying to college. She talked about how community colleges would take a shorter time to apply for than universities. She finished up by handing out individual transcripts, and then the students were sent to work. 

During their work time, many students had a hard time going through the application process. There was a lot of frustration in the room. Mrs. Kappel said, “This is by far the hardest part of getting accepted into college. Once this is part is over, you can relax a little bit.”

Once the students were done applying, they were able to sign a poster and list the colleges they applied for. The poster hangs on the wall as a reminder to the seniors that they have accomplished their goals. The seniors are always welcome to add more to the list if they apply anywhere else. 

Overall, it was a successful class period. Despite some initial frustration, it was a great start to new beginnings as they walked out of class with smiles on their faces.

Seniors Abigail Langdon, Garrett Sayers, Shyla Shaw, Kiara Brabec, and Cheyenne Brabec are one step closer to life after high school by applying to post-secondary schools
