When did you learn about college? (Have you learned about college?
Across the United States, high school students attend college fairs similar to the 2012 Sonoma County College Fair. While Americans idealize a last second shot, brief discussions change students’ futures. During a basketball game, fans notice the student who misses the shot, but what happens to the student who misses the conversation with the admission representative? Do we notice the students who do not have information?
Options are important.
If you attended college, how did you learn about school? Were you the first in your family to visit a college campus? Were your parents college graduates? Did your school have a college adviser? Do you assume that every high school student knows how to complete a college application? What do you think everyone knows about college? What do you take for granted?
In other words, what did you know and when did you know it?
