On May 1 — National College Decision Day — Seniors across the nation declared their future plans. Whether that be a two or four year school, Military, a Gap Year, students wore post-college plan colors or gear to represent their decisions.
For some, this day can be emotional and a reminder that they are almost done with high school. High school is just a small but important part of someone’s life so declaring post-graduation plans is a big deal.
Brian Miller ‘19 declared his decision to continue his education at Saint John’s University in St. Joseph, MN.
“College is college,” Miller said. “It’s exciting.”
Staying somewhat close to home, Gina DiOrio ‘19 was honored with being pre-accepted to the Bethel University Nursing program where she is continuing her education in the fall.
“I feel great [committing to college] and excited. I’ve been really excited for the freedom and moving away from Buffalo,” DiOrio said.
Some students, like Mackenzie Pawelk, sought education in other states. Pawelk is continuing her studies at North Dakota State University next school year.
“Deciding on a college feels organized. It’s nice to know where I’m going what I’m doing, and having everything figured out,” Pawelk said.
As the last month of High School comes to a close seniors appreciate the time they’ve spent at BHS and look forward to what the future holds.
