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.
