Student View: College and Career Village

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:

    About the CCV, I have some of the same views as Bree Dobbins. I believe that it could’ve been helpful for a lot of people but for me, it wasn’t that helpful. I already know what college or career I want to go into, so it wasn’t all that helpful.
