Fourteen SMCHS students joined Principal Spellman, and College Counselor, Mr. Mayer, Saturday, October 21, for a Southern California College Tour. The tour was free of charge and open to all juniors and seniors. The day included visits to The Claremont Colleges, University of California, Riverside, California State University, San Bernardino, University of LaVerne, and University of Redlands. This broad range of colleges gave the students a unique perspective of the colleges available to them in the Southern California area.
An SMCHS senior shared his thoughts on the trip. "I was interested in UC Riverside before this trip but online I was not able to get a good feeling for the university. Having this opportunity to visit the school gave me a chance to meet students, tour the campus, and get a feel for the spirit of the school. The college application process is challenging and having this chance to spend a day with my classmates in a small group with our counselor was great."
Students and Families: We are rescheduling our College Fair to the spring. With the date approaching, there were not enough universities committed to attend to make this offering beneficial for you or the universities. As always, we want these events to be worth your time and to be able to provide the greatest number of resources for you and your families. We have reached out to the college representatives and they have informed us that they have a much greater availability to attend college fairs in the spring. As such, we are partnering with them to find a suitable date in April. We will notify you and your parents of the rescheduled spring date as soon as it is secured. We apologize for any inconveniences that this may have caused.
