MSD hosts College Fair

Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School hosted its College Fair on Thursday, Feb. 29 from 6-8 p.m. in the cafeteria. Students and parents had the opportunity to gather information about a number of different colleges and universities.

Tables lined the walls of the cafeteria with posters attached that displayed each university. Students of all grades roamed from table to table with their parents, gaining information about various in-state and out-of-state colleges from college representatives. Various public universities inside Florida were featured, such as the University of Florida, University of Miami and Florida State University.

Local public universities such as Florida Atlantic University, Florida International University and Broward College were also featured.

“I wanted to learn more about schools I haven’t considered,” junior Jacob Raider said. “There are a lot of universities here that I haven’t even heard of before, so this gives me the chance to learn more about them.”

The University of Florida and University of Miami were among the most popular tables as both maintained long lines throughout the event.

“I come to talk to students and educate them about different Historically Black Colleges and Universities,” Florida Agricultural and Mechanical University representative Chloe Rogenus said. “Just being able to educate different students on that is a privilege to me.”

Students and parents gained most of their information by speaking to college representatives. However, each table also exhibited pamphlets about the college that contained information about undergraduate majors, campuses and student life. Students and parents could read through and take them to learn more.

“I haven’t started looking for colleges yet,” senior Chase Rivera said. “I think this will save me a lot of time searching because I can gather a lot of information from so many different colleges at once.”

Attendants took advantage of the opportunity to speak directly to college representatives and gained relevant information about numerous colleges and universities. The event was particularly useful to juniors searching for colleges to apply to and seniors deciding on a college to commit to.
