College and Career Fair

On September 6, 2023, at CPHS, the College and Career fair was held providing opportunities for students to research colleges and get a better idea of their Post-Secondary Plan. Many colleges, trade schools, and military recruiters had tables set up in the cafeteria to provide information about their programs.

Students were able to walk around, grab pamphlets, ask questions to the representatives, and attend a financial aid presentation in the Large Group Instruction room.

College-driven students were able to find information on schools that they might not have known about previously. Faith Choi, a junior at CPHS, discovered a lot of smaller colleges.

“I never really had any interest in them until I talked with them. I learned about the opportunity to be more one-on-one with professors, the scholarships offered, and much more,” Choi said. Choi wants to major in psychology or something with a medical focus.

I think the college fair was very helpful. Physically being able to see and talk to representatives was way different than just getting an email.

— Junior Hannah Jordan

She wants to go be a doctor, and possibly get a job in physiotherapy. She had a great time at the college fair and wants to go next time. “I learned a lot about the colleges and it really helped me narrow down where I want to go for my future career.”

Students were also able to look into different programs offered at the schools.

Hannah Jordan, a junior, learned more about schools that are aligned with her career idea. “I’ve been interested in forensics and environmental science programs. I like Grace College, Northern Michigan University, and Kansas State University,” Jordan said.

Jordan is still researching and hopes to find a school that will fit her needs. “I think the college fair was very helpful. Physically being able to see and talk to representatives was way different than just getting an email.”
