Road to College Night Introduces Red Mountain Students to Higher Education

Students and parents recieve information from ASU and UofA college representatives at Road to College Night on Sept. 13.

With college quickly approaching, juniors and seniors are eager to prepare for academic success after high school. Road to College Night took place in the auditorium on Sept. 1. At the event, in-state colleges such as ASU, MCC, NAU and GCU came together to answer students’ questions.

“I want them to leave with confidence,” Assistant Principal Ms. Creaser said. “I think that they will walk away understanding more about the application process, so that it’s not as frightening to get started.”

Road to College Night refreshes students’ viewpoints on college, providing them with valuable information to help them be as successful as possible.

“I am looking at the requirements for in-state colleges like ASU right now,” junior Kendall McBean said. “I want to see what type of sports teams ASU offers, what divisions there are for sports like golf and what is offered for academics.”

“I want them to leave with confidence.”

Students and their parents engaged in conversations with college representatives about admission requirements and acquired advice about how to properly start the application process. They also got exclusive details about campus life and financial aid opportunities.

“We really hoped that both students and their parents came,” Creaser said. “I think it’s important that students and parents all hear the same information at the same time.”

Each year, students are continuously encouraged by teachers and administration to attend Road to College Night—designed to put students and parents at ease. This event helps them learn more information about college gives them a head start on their journey to success.
