Scotch Plains – Fanwood High School hosted its 64th annual college night on Tuesday, November 10th for high school students to peruse college options and ask questions. Over 150 colleges from across the country were in attendance, spread out between both gyms, the cafeteria, as well as a few classrooms. Juniors and seniors were the main attendees, but freshmen and sophomores could also be spotted in the crowd.
Popular college tables included: University of Maryland, Marist College, Rutgers University, University of Delaware, Quinnipiac University, and many others. Tables were also set up for branches of the military such as, the Marines, the Army and the Navy.
Susan and Chris Johnson, parents of freshman Ryan Johnson, were the representatives for the University of Pennsylvania. They have been attending college night for years as representatives to offer helpful advice on how to get into their alma mater, as well as other colleges. “Students are not always prepared for the events of college night,” said Susan Johnson. “I recommend that if you plan on attending, think of three really good questions that you can ask every college.”
If you missed this year’s college night, do not worry! To receive information from colleges, simply go to their website and find out how to request information.  If that is not possible, make sure to attend the 2016 college night.
