Alpena High School hosts college night for students

ALPENA, Mich — The school year is well underway, but that doesn’t mean it’s too early to start planning for next year, especially for high school students.

Now is the time for seniors to start sending out applications, and other high school students to seriously consider their next steps. College night is the perfect opportunity for students across the area to learn how to further their education, either with a traditional degree or a trade. Advisor Mary Daoust, says planning ahead is necessary.

“Simply going into the job market with a high school education is not as conducive as having some form of education after high school.”

With many students living far away from major universities, this event will allow students to ask questions and get a feel for the culture at each institution. The goal is to help them explore options that will appeal to their interests and open the door for career opportunities.

“We don’t necessarily want them to decide what they’re going to do for the next 30 or 40 years, that’s not realistic at their age, but what’s next and what should they do after high school.

College night is from 6 to 7:30 p.m., Wednesday night in Alpena High School’s gym. All high school students are welcome, even those who do not attend AHS.
