District Annual College Fair
"Do you know what you want to be when you grow up? What college do you plan on applying to ? Any idea what you want to major in? This interrogation fest is common for high schools students. When asked these same questions, one senior stated that she still "wasn't sure." That senior isn't alone; many others share the same sentiment, including one junior who confessed he was still "undecided" about his plans.
This is where a college fair comes in handy. This year, La Puente High School will be hosting the 57th assembly District Annual College and Career Fair. The affair will be held on Saturday, September 19 in the gym from 10:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and will be free for students and parents alike. The fair will feature over 40 colleges, including UC Santa Barbara, Cal State Fullerton, Biola University, and the University of Notre Dame.
Along with the individual college booths are specialized workshops that cater toward the broader questions about college. Ever wondered what the advantages of attending community college are? There is a workshop for that. Questioning whether to take the SAT or ACT? There is a workshop for that. Have questions about financial aid? Guess what? There is a workshop just for that.
