Over 60 Schools Confirmed for Upcoming College Fair

The annual held college fair is an amazing opportunity for students to visit with different college representatives, all under one roof. Students have the advantage of asking all the questions they please, rather than searching through the immense Internet outlet for the very same questions that may remain unanswered.

Senior Konstantin Petrenko took a part of last year’s event, and felt his time there was invaluable.

“By attending the college fair I know where I want to apply to this year. It helped to reinforce knowledge I knew prior to attending and informed me on information that I wouldn’t have gotten without participating. Anyone who can should jump at the chance to attend, it was well worth it.”

This year, the College Fair will take place on Thursday, October 11, 2012. To date, over 60 schools are confirmed to take part in this prestigious event.

Juniors and seniors can get their tickets in front of the new building on Monday (10/8), Tuesday (10/9), and Wednesday (10/10) before school from 6:45-7:10AM and during lunch from 10:30AM-12:50PM. All students will need to have a ticket to enter the college fair and be in their school uniform.

*Juniors: Please see your English teacher for more information on your important role in creating questions to ask the reps at this year’s college fair.

Last year tickets ran out so make sure to come and sign up for your ticket early to guarantee your spot.  Once the juniors and seniors have their tickets, sophomores will be considered if there is space available.

About the Contributor
Patricia Passwaters, Editor in Chief
Patty Passwaters is a senior in the Communication, Arts, Film and Digital Media Academy at Coral Gables Senior High School. Ever since freshman year she has taken every opportunity to become involved. She is not only the Editor-in-Chief / News Editor of CavsConnect, but is also a member of Interact and NHS, an honorary member of Yearbook, President of Quill & Scroll, Managing Editor of Catharsis, Treasurer of the Creative Writing Club, and Student Council President. Patty is almost always described as a "what you see is what you get kind of girl". She is dedicated, hard working, passionate about what she does, genuine and a hopeless romantic. Even when she has a lot going on if you ever need a helping hand her's would be the first to reach out to you. One of her biggest weaknesses is wanting to make everyone happy. In her opinion, one of the worst feelings someone can feel is letting someone else down. In the rare occasion that she isn't juggling her academics and extra curricular activities at once, you will find her reading. Close friends know that the perfect gift to give her is a Barnes & Noble gift card because there is nothing more that she loves than books. It is her outlet, she loves getting lost in a world full of romance (which set her expectations far too high). Her senior year is definitely going to be bittersweet, although she doesn't want high school to come to an end, she can't wait to see what else is in store for her. She is grateful to everyone who has made her high school experience one that she will never forget.
