Today, Oct. 26, students to attend RBHS’s College and Career Village. The typical class schedule was completely rearranged to accommodate the event and its guests. The event gave students of all grade levels a chance to listen in on lectures and ask questions of professionals about their fields and then later browse a college fair constructed in the gymnasium.
Speakers ranged from former RBHS grads and their stories of success and sage advise, to work professionals in fields as diverse from the arts to bio medical engineering.
BearingNews asked students:
Did you find the college and career village helpful?
Did you find any colleges that you liked?
