Colleges pay a visit to THS

Colleges pay a visit to THS

By Jamie Burgess, Yearbook Editor

For most seniors, the beginning of this school year has been stressful. College research, test scores, and essay writing has dominated all of their time. Trying to decide which college is the right college is a daunting process and sometimes the seniors and some ambitious juniors don’t have the resources to get to a school campus to take a tour or meet with someone who knows the college well.

Luckily for Tigard High students, colleges from all over the country have been starting to show up in our very own career center to talk to students and help them understand a bit more about the college choosing experience.

A few of the colleges that will be sending an admissions counselor over to talk to THS students are coming on the following days:

George Fox – October 1st at 2pm

Oregon State University – October 2nd at 9:30am

University of Southern California – October 2nd  at 1pm

University of Denver  – October 2nd at 2pm

Pepperdine – October 3rd at 12:30pm

If you would like a little more information about some possible school choices, head over to the career center on any of these days to meet with one of the college’s admissions professionals. Check in with the career center soon to see when other colleges are scheduled to visit.
