I visited SDSU, Morningside, Wayne State, St Kate's, Northwestern, Mount Marty, University of Minn Morris, etc. I had time to visit all of the tables I wanted too but would have loved a little more time to talk with other schools. I am considering Northwestern in Orange City, Iowa. They have a great Music Education Program and have tons of other interesting music programs. Another favorite of mine would have been Unvistery of Saint Kate's which is an all-girls college outside of the twin cities with great social services and social justice programs!

The trip to Washington D.C. was absolutely once in a lifetime. Throughout the week I learned about the secrets behind the monuments. We also talked about three key terms they were liberty, justice, and equality. On one of the nights we had a debate about a topic we choose, and I chose is it mandatory for a school to make a student stand for the pledge/national anthem. We also had a mock congress, and I was the Speaker of the house, the topic was should police officer have body cameras, and should the government fund it. We had two people who came to debate about questions we had one was liberal the other was a conservative. We also went to seminar about the military one girl being marines, and other on is in the Air Force.

I visited SDSU, NDSU, UND, UNO, MSU, Northern, and University of Iowa. I had time to visit all of the tables I wanted to and more. I am considering NDSU. I learned that NDSU has a top five psychology program along with an athletic training program that will cut a year of schooling that is usually required at other schools for athletic training. I need to find more information about the different schools and visit the campuses to know which school I would like to attend in the future.

I visited Avera, Sanford, Buena Vista, Saint Mary's University of Minnesota, and Western Iowa Tech. I did have time to visit all the booths that I wanted too as well as a few more. I'm really considering either Sanford, Buena Vista, or Avera. I didn't know that two of the colleges I am considering have recently added what I am interested in, into their schools. All three schools that I'm considering have said they would love it if I job shadowed, visit the campus, and volunteer so I can see the departments I want.

I visited the University of Nebraska, SDSU, NDSU, and Morrison booth. I didn't really thought about colleges I wanted to visit so I just visited some. I might consider SDSU now, since I really liked what she said about the University. I learned that the campus has a big diversity and people from all around the world attend to that school. I'll now need to take the ACT.

I visited SDSU, STI, Concordia, University of Minnesota- Moorhead, & DSU. I visited all the colleges that I wanted to see that were there, but there was a few that weren't there that I wanted to visit. I am considering going to SDSU or STI and go into nursing. I learned that University of Minnesota-Moorhead is hoping to get a RN degree program approved to offer at there school. I would like to visit STI & maybe SDSU again (I've already been there twice) and talk to an admissions counselor and maybe the head of the nursing program and talk to them about there school to see if it is somewhere that I for sure want to go to. I would possibly also want to shadow a nurse who works in pediatrics, ICU, or obstetrics.

I visited USD, SDSU, NDSU, Iowa, Ohio State, and the Air Force. I am considering the Air Force. I learned you have to have really good vision for Air Force. Like better vision then I thought. I don't need anything other then good grades because I already did my job shadow. I learned that in the Air Force they are looking for pilots now.

I visited UND and U.S. Army. I had enough time to look around, I just didn't know what I was looking for. I'm thinking about going into the army. I learned that there are lots of benefits when you agree to be in the U.S. Army. I need to know what the physical requirement is for getting into the Army. I also would like to know more about active duty in the military for the U.S. Army.

At the Planning Fair I talked to USF, University of Nebraska, Dakota State, and a few other schools. I had plenty of time to visit all the different schools I wanted to see. I am considering the University of Nebraska. I didn't know that Graphic design isn't a very common college option. A lot of schools had different classes but not quite what I'm looking for. Now I need to look into other graphic design programs.
03:58 PM ET (US)
I visited USF, I didn't have any interest in the other colleges. While talking with them I realized that I am probably not going to college.

I went to Concordia College, Minnesota State University, South Dakota State University and Southeast Tech. I wanted to see more of the technical schools but most of them weren't there. I'm considering Southeast Tech for Medical Coding. What I learned was that I had to visit the college before I actually make a decision. I need to go the college and visit it and tour the campus.
03:55 PM ET (US)
I visited the STI booth, University of Lincoln Nebraska, Northern State and the Army booth. I did have time to visit all the booths because I was only wanted to visit a few. I want to go into nursing and the guy at the Army booth told me that they could cover all of the costs of my schooling if I went into the Army and also told me I may not even have to go to basic training. I want to take a tour of STI because thats the main school I am looking at. I also am going to look into volunteering over the summer at Sanford.

I visited Iowa, SDSU, NDSU, Moorehead college, Creighton, Ohio state, and USD. I also visited the army station. I didn't really have any in mind that I wanted to see just visit some. I am not really considering any college but maybe Minnesota State University. I learned that your first year, on campus, is 18,000. Then your second year, off campus, is 8500. I need to take the ACT.
