Jamestown High School recently held its annual College Consortium. College admissions representatives from the Western New York area met with seniors to discuss academic majors, collegiate athletics, housing opportunities, tuition costs, financial aid, clubs and organizations and how to apply to their universities and colleges.
Colleges represented at the Consortium were: Alfred State College, Alfred University, Bryant and Stratton College, Buffalo State College, Canisius College, Daemen College, D'Youville College, Erie Community College, Fredonia State College, Genesee Community College, Hilbert College, Medaille College, Niagara Community College, Niagara University, St. Bonaventure University, Trocaire College, University at Buffalo and Villa Maria College.
JHS senior Bernadette Smith attended the College Consortium with hopes to expand her knowledge of area colleges and learn more about their programs. Bernadette said, "With the end of my senior year approaching, I was able to learn more about colleges. It was convenient to have many colleges from different areas all in one place." Smith plans to study pharmacy when she enters college in the fall of 2014.
JHS students Bernadette Smith and Vanessa Morse talk to representatives from St. Bonaventure University during the recent JHS College Consortium.
