Monday is “Sticker Day,” giving students the opportunity to proudly sport stickers with their declared or accepted colleges, and an invitation to be asked about them. Stickers are available at the North Campus entrance or at the College/Career Center, the staff of which will also wear stickers touting their alma maters.
Tuesday is “Show Your Team Spirit” day, inviting all students to wear the gear of their favorite colleges. Wednesday features “College Night” at North Campus, inviting students to come and meet representatives from over 225 colleges, counselors to suggest particular colleges of interest, and National Honor Society volunteers.
Finally, Thursday is “College/Scholarship Pride Day,” with students invited to bring their scholarship offers or acceptance letters to the College Center for a “sweet treat.”
