In the college search process, it is advisable to have a PLAN (Prioritize, Locate, Access, Name) of action. The first step, to Prioritize, involves thinking about what you expect from college. Ask yourself the following questions: What do I want to major/minor in? Where would I like my college to be located? What size college would I like to attend? What athletic programs or activities would I like my college to offer? What price range can I afford?

The second step, LOCATE, involves search for the information to answer your questions. School counselors and college guide booklets will be available to you at the information tables to help you find the colleges you may be interested in learning about. The participants at College Information Day can be found in the centerspread of this newspaper.

The next step is to ACCESS information about these colleges. Once you have met with the representatives and collected information, select five to ten colleges to write to for further information. Paramount to any selection process is the campus visit. At this point, students and parents should be ready to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each school.

The final step is to NAME three to five colleges to which you would like to apply. We advise you to complete and send SUNY applications by December 1. All other applications should be completed by December 15, regardless of deadline dates. This will ensure enough time to correct any errors in the application process. Also be sure to give your school counselor and other references ample time to write any letters of recommendation that might accompany your application.

Along with college representatives, there will be representatives from various branches of the military on hand to discuss R.O.T.C. scholarships, the New G.I. Bill, Army College Fund, Navy College Fund and other options which are available to students. You will also have the opportunity to meet with representatives from various student loan lenders and other experts in financial aid. Remember to consult with your school counselor as you go through the college selection process. They are your best resources.

At College Information Day, there will be many people waiting to share information with you. We encourage all interested students and parents to come to the Arnot Mall on October 21st and take advantage of this valuable information. The more prepared you are for College Information Day, the more you will benefit from it.
