BRAWLEY – Higher Education Week kicked off early this week at Brawley Union High School with over thirty college recruiters from throughout California and out-of-state setting up shop at the campus gym Monday, May 19th, to inform and recruit prospective students.
The goal being to give the junior class an opportunity to start planning for their future college experience since university applications will be completed and sent in the fall.
“The best part of higher education week is definitely the exposure to the different universities; what they offer, tips for your application process, and just getting ready to get your future in gear after high school,” said high school junior Tino Gonzales.
Monday was the first of two meetings; the college recruiters will return in September once this class becomes seniors to help in submitting their applications during the months of October and November.
“Students had the opportunity to engage with college recruiters and talk about majors, the admission process, scholarships and financial aid. For most students this was the first time talking to college recruiters and hopefully this will allow them to make the right decision when applying to colleges in the Fall,” said Brawley Union High Junior Counselor Frank Felix.
With the school year winding to a finish, Brawley Union High juniors will go into their summer vacation and their senior year with information toward making their post high school educational and future decisions.
“There are postsecondary institution out there waiting for our students and having all the college recruiters here under one roof, will allow the students to find that connection,” added Felix.
