Wednesday Sept. 12, Rockhurst High School hosted 10 speakers from colleges around the country, as well as one from Scotland, to speak on a variety of subjects ranging from college athletics to planning for college visits.

“I came tonight because I’m an only child so my parents don’t know that much about college since they went so long ago,” junior Grace Pence said. “I think it helps take off some of the stress around the college process.”

Pence came and attended the following sessions: essays, resumes and interviews, standardized testing and college financing.

“My takeaway is when you are applying to colleges make sure you find out which ones you like and do research on it because every college is different,” Pence said.

Welcome back! I’m Lily Hart, a second-year staffer and managing editor of web. While living the #darticated life might not be easy, it is endlessly worthwhile. After finishing up a page design or completing an interview, you might find me in dramatic hysterics with my friends, having brunch or reliving my glory days through early 2000s bops. As a second year staffer I hope to keep growing and improving on my skills on staff while balancing it with my many hours of homework. So, as Tom Haverford greatly put it: get ready to “Treat yo’ self” to some high quality new content this year!
