College, Career, Contests, & Other Resources

We post college and career information often in The Trojan Daily. In addition to college and career information, we post contests and other resources from which all of our students could benefit. After this type of information is posted once in The Trojan Daily, it will be moved to the page located at the link below. The information will remain on that page until the deadline has passed, or it is no longer relevant. We hope this is helpful, and we hope you will take advantage of these resources!
