COLLEGE PANEL NIGHT! Wednesday, January 8th, 2020, 7pm, BHS Auditorium

Since this is happening right after we get back from winter break, MARK YOUR CALENDAR NOW so you don’t forget! This is one of the most useful events of the year. Join us for insights from recent BHS graduates on their experiences with the college application and selection process, as well as college life. Ask questions about their preparations for college while in high school, what they did that was helpful and what they wished they had done, and their transitions to college or a gap year. Get helpful, real-life tips, directly from kids who just went through it all. All high school students and parents are encouraged to attend.
