Guidance department hosts college night

The guidance department has rescheduled the program entitled “College Planning for Juniors and Their Parents” to March 9 at 6:30 in the cafeteria.

“It is the only big place left in our building, so we’ll make the location work,” said director of guidance, Mrs. Linda Duame.

Duame hopes all juniors with plans of attending a four-year college will attend with at least one of their parents or guardians.

The program will cover topics such as junior and senior year planning calendars, the college selection process and application procedure, admission testing, and NCAA elgibility.

“The expected outcome after these winter and early spring guidance workshops and events is the culmination of a college list that each junior will have created with ‘reach’ colleges, ‘good fit’ colleges, and ‘safety’ colleges,” said Duame.

In addition to this college night, Duame and junior class guidance counselor, Mrs. Lydia Brady, will be holding many events in the upcoming months to help juniors make college plans.  Some of these events include college planning workshops in US History classes and a college fair which will be held March 11 from 9AM-12:15PM for all grade levels.

“We have not had a college fair here in a very long time, so this is almost like a ‘first ever’ event for LHS. The college fair here will be followed by the biggest regional college fair at the Big E in April,” said Duame.

The college fair will feature colleges such as Emmanuel College, Holyoke Community College, Worcester State Univesity, and Porter and Chester Institute.

If you have ever wanted to know how to become an exceptionally awesome human being, Brianne is obviously over-qualified for your inquiries. In her most natural environment she is suffering from a caffeine-high, rocking out to Lady Gaga while simultaneously Facebook-stalking cute boys and shopping compulsively for even more completely unneeded new clothes.  Despite her over-active shopping habit, every morning she can be found yelling about how she has nothing to wear.  An avid New Englander, Brianne can often be heard overusing the term “wicked” or screaming at the TV during any Boston sports game.  She also has many terrible dark secrets such as her love for Justin Bieber and her obsession with Jersey Shore. A typical Friday night ripper to her consists of Beyoncé dancing to 90’s music and enthusiastically watching the History channel through all hours of the night.  Brianne also enjoys romantic walks to the refrigerator and pumping iron at the gym.
