North Pointe Now

NEW HORIZONS| Gaining exposure to a variety of colleges can significantly impact students educational choices and future opportunities. South counselor Jennifer Vick underscores the importance of this exposure in broadening students’ future. “I think its great because you just get some face time and exposure to a lot of different schools,” Said Jennifer Vick. “I always feel like sometimes kids just dont have the chance to see schools. You see the big schools that are playing on TV, or if your parents or siblings go to a school, maybe you have been to a particular campus, but its kind of limited. There are so many different kinds of schools, and different sizes and different programs. I feel like thats kind of a nice entry point because its the first exposure a lot of kids have to different schools they have never heard of.”
