|Centre invites high school juniors to campus
RELEASED: May 1, 2003
DANVILLE, KYIs your junior year of high school too soon to start looking into options for college? Not according to Centre College freshman Meg Ivey.
"I wanted to get an early start looking at colleges to make the decision easier in my senior year," said Ivey, a native of Cookeville, Tenn., who attended the College's Junior Day two years ago.
Each year the College hosts Junior Day, an event specifically designed for high school juniors who are beginning a college search. This year's event will be held on Saturday, May 10.
"Spring of junior year is an ideal time to start the college search," said Susan Johnston, associate director of admission. "Students can prepare to visit colleges over the summer, and begin to realize what will be required of them in their senior year."
Throughout the day students can attend information sessions about choosing a college, the application process, financing a Centre education and a day in the life of a college student.
"You're able to see what the campus is really like," freshman Tommy Landrum said, who visited while a junior at Hickory High School in Hickory, N.C.
Registration for the event is from noon to 1 p.m. at the College's Norton Center for the Arts, and the program lasts from 1-3:30 p.m.
