Riverhead, NY - April 29th, 2015 - Students in Lauren Heuer’s English 12 class at William Floyd High School recently had the opportunity to take a field trip to the Eastern Campus of Suffolk County Community College (SCCC) where they were greeted by a college official who spoke to them about the different majors that are available, the admissions process, applying for financial aid and more.
After the presentation, students were given a tour by a William Floyd graduate who is currently in her second semester at SCCC.
“This trip was a wonderful opportunity for my students to help take away some of their fears about the transition from high school to college,” said Mrs. Heuer. “Even if they are not planning on attending this specific college, students got a glimpse of life on a college campus.”
Below are some thoughts and reflections from three students who attended.
“It was a great opportunity to experience college life.” – Tynesia Crowder
“It made me want to achieve my goal of becoming a social worker.” – Macario Cortez
“The trip made me think about my college and career choice.” – Joseph Massaro
