Nearly 1,200 local juniors and seniors are seriously considering their options for the future following the Logan County College Day on Sept. 15.

Students could speak with representatives from area two-year and four-year colleges and universities, technical schools and the military during the 37th annual event held at Ben Logan High School and sponsored by the Midwest Regional Educational Service Center.

Indian Lake High School senior Aubrey Grider is already accepted to Bowling Green State University. However, she took advantage of College Day to explore her options. Grider says, “I am open to checking out other places to see if anything else looks as appealing.” With an older brother and sister in college, Grider also knows what questions to ask of the representatives about issues like application deadlines, fee waivers and scholarship opportunities.

Logan County College Day is offered to juniors and seniors from Bellefontaine City, Benjamin Logan, Indian Lake, Ohio Hi-Point Career Center and Riverside Local Schools. A panel of speakers from two-year, four-year, state and private schools and the military also met with students to describe the various educational options. MRESC Youth Development Liaison Karen Sorreles says nearly 70 institutions were on-hand.
