College Ready?

Do you have questions about what college is really like?
                    What you should bring to the dorm?
                                 Is college really that much harder than high school?
                                                     Where should I go to school?

There are lots of questions that kids might have and we have a chance to get some answers for you! Come join us on Tuesday, Oct. 16th at 7PM for a chance to talk with real, live college students! There won't be anyone in a suit telling you that you should do this or that, just people to talk to. No question is too silly, just ask.
