Colleges Visit Gaels

The annual Kennedy Catholic College fair was held on September 28th in the gymnasium. Representatives from colleges and universities from all over the United States came to help educate and interest our students in their programs and facilities. The College Fair is a useful tool in a students’ educational decision making process. This year, Kennedy Catholic  hosted over fifty different schools to help widen and explore our future endeavors.

As students made their way to all the different booths at the fair, it compelled students to consider what they may be interested in for the future. Career and major choosing can be a daunting task for any student but we are lucky to have the resources at Kennedy to navigate and consider those decisions.

While the event is mainly for seniors to gather information about the schools, all grades visit the College Fair throughout the day, which helps us get more comfortable approaching and engaging with the representatives over the course of the three years leading up until senior year. In the days before the fair, Ms. Torre’s 11th grade College Preparation and Career Planning Class spent time working together to research and gather information about all the schools being represented at the fair. This information included location, geographic setting, size, tuition, athletics division, and prominent programs. This assignment was not only helpful when walking around the fair, but introduced juniors to the types of research they start doing toward the end of junior year and beginning of senior year.

Whether you are a senior looking for early action and application information or a freshman simply considering what you may be interested in studying 4 years from now, the college fair is a great event to help look into your future college decisions.
