Mr. Whitling has approved the second annual “Senior College and Career Day” which will be Friday, Oct 26th, 2018. This is a day designated for senior Logos students to visit colleges or explore careers. Senior classes are canceled for the day, but it isn’t a vacation day.
Option 1: College Visitation. Go visit a college you are interested in; take a tour, and sit in on some classes. Note that Friday, Oct 26th is NSA’s “Prospective Student Weekend” and also is the UI’s “Envision Idaho” day. You could even travel out of the area for the long weekend. Colleges love to have you visit, but you need to arrange it ahead of time.
Option 2: job shadow. Spend a day following and observing somebody in a career you are interested in. You might visit the hospital, EMSI, or an accounting firm. There are lots of good options, but you will have to arrange it ahead of time.
- Start considering options now. Take advantage of the day to go visit someplace in person.
- If you are having trouble deciding what to do, see Mr. Euhus for some ideas.
- There will be an assignment. You will report what you did for the day, via a worksheet you’ll fill out. Stay tuned for more information.
- You can go visit colleges on other days, but senior classes will continue regardless of who is gone. We are trying to get many or most of our senior visitation absences done on one day, rather than have it spread across the whole semester. It is not a problem to be gone other days, but just plan ahead by getting your assignments.
I’ll be discussing more with each of you in the next couple of months, and checking with you about your plan.
Let me know if you have any questions.
