Starting a college search can be an overwhelming task. This area will provide information about colleges and universities that will, hopefully, help in the college search. Students need to find out as much as they can about potential schools in which they are interested. The search can begin at Jasper High School. The guidance office has viewbooks and brochures from many colleges and universities, both within and outside of Indiana. In addition, colleges and universities send admission representatives to JHS to meet with interested students.
Colleges and universities host campus preview days and other special events. These days allow students to develop their first impression of a campus. They usually involve group presentations and a tour of the campus. Many of these preview days are on Saturdays or during fall break, so it may not be necessary to miss a day of school. If a school day must be missed for a college visit, the student must fill out a college leave form and schedule the absence from school. It is highly recommended that students visit their top choice college on a regular school day. It allows the student to see what they would encounter on a normal day of classes.
An excellent resource for students that provides information about colleges and universities, financial aid, and career planning is the Learn More Indiana web site. Check their site often for help with college and career planning.
