Campion Academy seniors were given a couple days off of school last week to preview various colleges and plan for their futures. Campion Academy took a bus of 28 seniors to Union College in Lincoln, Nebraska, and the rest of the class submitted requests to view other colleges such as Southern Adventist University, Southwestern Adventist University, La Sierra University, Colorado State University, and various local community colleges. They took tours, asked questions, and took steps towards making a big decision.
The visits helped with choosing a school, and also with choosing potential majors. While at the colleges, students were able to visit the departments they may be interested in. Patricia Simamora, who visited Union College, says, “Going into college days, I thought I had my mind set on nursing, but then coming out of it I knew I wanted to major in Occupational Therapy Assistance. Touring the college and looking at all the different programs they had really helped me make an important decision in my life.”
Other students, like Ashley Halvorson, were actually able to make or solidify their decision on which college they would like to attend. “One thing I really appreciate about Campion is that they let you find out what future looks best for you,” she says. “They give you time to visit colleges and they let you pick to visit a college that interests you. I was able to visit Southern Adventist University with my mom and a couple of friends, and it really affirmed the decision I made about going there.”
