I visited a couple schools, I went to DWU which I got to talk a lot about their online classes and what would help me in the long run. I went to STI which I talked to the person that I met at the Med day at STI and we talked about what opened my eyes their. I finally got to go to USD which is the college that I really want to go to. I talked with this guy that accidentally messaged me on facebook instead of the Elizabeth Carda from OG. It was an interesting connection, but it did make me more comfortable for me to talk to him. I do not think that I have enough time to meet with all of the colleges that I would of liked to. I really wanted to go and talk to Augustana just because I've never really looked into them before and I was wondering what they would all have to say to me.

I visited with a lot of college reps from a lot of different schools. I talked to USD, USF, SDSU, STI, MTI. After attending the college fair I am considering MTI, USD, SDSU, STI. Something I didn't know was that at most of the school they have speech therapy. I would like to do another job shadow and a college visit

I visited with a lot of college reps from a lot of different schools. I talked to USD, NSU, Mount Marty, Nebraska Wesleyan, Briar Cliff, and Wayne State. After attending the college fair, I am considering Mount Marty, Briar Cliff, and USD. Something I didn't know was that at most of the schools, I will have to take two years of schooling on their campus and then take two years at a different college. I would like to have another job shadow so I can really figure out what I want to do in the future. After the job shadow, I will visit with colleges that offer that at their college.

I am not sure what carer I want to do yet. But something that I have been thinking about is joining the National Guard. I still did talk to some of the colleges to see if I could get any ideas of what I want to do. Some of the jobs that I have been thinking of is an electrician witch I could do through STI. I have also been thinking of a carer in law enforcement. I still have time to decide what I want to do and where.

I first visited the bigger SD schools such as USD and SDSU and talked to them about what they offer. A school or military branch that I was considering about when going into the college fair was SDSU and USD the military branch I was thinking about was the Air Force. I learned that STI has a graduation rate almost over 90% in most carriers which is impressive. I think some things that I need to go do now is visiting some colleges and get familiar of what they look like so I can make my decision. Overall I had a good time just needed more time to get around to talk to other colleges.

 I got to visit a lot of different college reps. I visited SDSU, Lake Area, Nebraska, Financial support and so on. There were some that I was unable to visit because of time. I am considering SDSU, STI or Nebraska. I learned a lot of how many different scholarships there are and what they consist of. I think another job shadow or another campus visit will help with my decisions.

Some of the different schools I had visited was Northern State, Iowa, Mount Marty, Creighton, SDSU, and Wayne State. I didn't have enough time to visit some of the other schools I had on my list. I have a few schools I'm now considering which are Wayne State and Northern State. I didn't know you could double major at Wayne state and Northern State. I would say Im gonna schedule a few campus visits for the schools I said I will be having a strong look at.

When i went to the college fair i made sure to visit every tech school booth because those are the only schools I plan on going to. Since I went to the college fair I learned about a lot of schools I didn't know about. Some of these schools have really interesting programs that i would be really interested in. Minnesota West is a tech school that has a 1-year program that they just started and it sounds like something for me. Overall this was a great experience for me to see more colleges

Right now I am thinking about dental hygiene or interior design. That being said, I talked to USD, SDSU, Mankato and Grand Canyon University. I had enough time to talk to all the booths I wanted. Something that I learned was that Mankato only accepts 20 kids for their dental program every Fall. I knew that USD accepted 28, so I was hoping that Mankato accepted more kids. I would like to visit USD and Mankato so I can get a feel for their campus.

I went and visited the colleges, UNL, UNO, and The University of Iowa. Yes, I got to visit all that I wanted even though there was not much time. I am considering joining the Air National Guard to become a pilot but I am not sure yet. I am also looking at UNO to become a pilot, they are the fifth best aviation program in the nation. I did not know that joining the Air National Guard you get free life insurance. Now I am going to go and visit some campus's and begin looking at the college that I would like to attend.

The first booth I visited was USD. I found out about their nursing program and how many of their graduates get jobs 6 months after college. I also went and talked to the army about enlisting and becoming a medic for the army. Now I need to do a campus visit and talk more with a recruiter. I learned that USF has a 100% employment rate for all nursing graduates 6 months after college. I also learned that I can become a CNA and work part time after I turn 18.

I visited many schools including: Wayne State, Iowa State, UNL, and SDSU. I did have all the time I needed, but it was very rushed and I didn't get involved into deeply talking about it. Im still very undecided and it made it a little more confusing. I learned that a lot of colleges have my major than I thought. I need to go on some college visits.

I helped my friend find colleges in Nebraska because that is where she would like to go. I was able to find everything that I wanted to see. I wasn't aware of how many school offered some form of a writing class. Location is super important to me when looking at a college. I looked at many places that where here in South Dakota.
