Push for earlier look at college prep pays off
Jconline.com, April 19 -- On Friday, nearly 500 students made their first campus visit to Purdue University. Clay DeYoung, college and career counselor at Jefferson High School, said he hopes the students will be more ready when they arrive at his school next fall. He said it's important they realize the ground work laid as a freshman affects what's available as a senior. "The biggest mistakes I've seen are people do not know what their colleges expect," he said. "They want to go to Purdue or IU, but they haven't taken the right courses. They think college is just going to fall in their lap, and they're not looking at it in enough time." Full story.
