FHS Seniors Begin Search for Perfect University

Stephanie Martins and Laura Chicklis

            With school finally back into the swing of things, the senior class of 2011 has begun to prepare for what the future holds in store for them. Students are narrowing down their college lists and are continuing to visit other schools. At this point, many have discovered the characteristics they find most appealing in colleges; big or small, city or suburb, and near or far from home. Now with applications due only a few months away, many students have started the application process, which for many means starting the tedious task of completing the Common App. Luckily, we have started to see the most-desired green slips from Guidance to help us along the way. College Representatives will be visiting Franklin High School to give information regarding their schools. Below is a list of the colleges that will be visiting for the week of 9/20-9/24.

Monday: Hofstra University F period @ 12:15
