Stepping towards the next steps

Voices flooded the gym as students spoke with representatives from colleges all over the country, each giving them a possible path for their future after high school graduation.

Apr. 17 was South’s annual College Night. Students were given the opportunity to learn more about dozens of colleges through one-on-one chats with representatives who’ve experienced the schools firsthand.

“I’m getting to know colleges that I never would have acknowledged without (College Night),” Maryn Smith ’25 said.

Smith attended the event with her parents in hopes of getting some face-to-face time with undergraduate admissions officers at the various colleges she’s interested in as well as learning more about schools she may not have considered before.

“I thought some of these colleges were very small and obscure, but I’m finding out they’re close to really big cities and have a really big student population,” Smith said. “Definitely broadened my horizons.”

With the end of the year time, dozens of events like College Night are taking place at high schools around the area, so a lot of the representatives who visited South are well versed in the benefits of such an opportunity for students.

“The benefit is getting students and their families in front of different universities so they can find out information about colleges and find the right fit for them,” Oakland University Senior Recruitment Adviser Katrina Adrian said.

In addition to introducing new options for students, College Night also provides the opportunity to rule out colleges that may not be the right fit for someone and shorten a seemingly endless application list.

“It gives you more ideas, but it also helps you with the stressful situation you are in picking colleges as a junior,” Tyler Moore ’25 said. “(Applications) are right there next year, and it’s nice how they gave us so many colleges and so many options to choose from.”

When she’s not baking or watching Gilmore Girls, second year staffer and Supervising Copy Editor Charlotte Glasser ’25 is behind the computer making The Tower newspaper come alive. Glasser takes French through University of Detroit Mercy, her goal is to become fluent; she was inspired this year after her trip to France in July, this past summer.“I think that French is such a beautiful language and I have always wanted to be bilingual,” Glasser said. Both of Glasser’s siblings have been on The Tower in years prior—her sister enjoyed it so much that Glasser decided to follow in her footsteps. She said that one of the reasons she loves Tower is that journalism is its style of writing.“If essay writing or creative writing isn’t your thing, maybe this is and I love how Tower has something for everyone,” said Glasser.
