Last week was Gateway’s annual annual alumni college fair. This college fair gives students the opportunity to talk to Gateway students who have graduated in the past few years about the college they are attending. It’s different from other college fairs because students can get a first-hand account of what the college is like from people they know. It is also advantageous for seniors planning to attend a local community college, because schools like HCC, STCC, and BCC will give students who have filled out an application an instant decision on their admission.
This week began winter sports season, which means mine and four friends’ final year of cheerleading. I can’t believe these next three months will be my last cheering for Gateway’s varsity basketball teams, but I’m excited to start. This also means it is time to balance school work with practice, which means working harder to finish homework before and after practice in a reasonable amount of time. Even though we are seniors, we still have to do homework and get good grades just like any other year!
