JHS Educates Students on WNY College Opportunities

Jamestown High School held its 15th Annual Western New York College Consortium in the library with 17 area colleges distributing information and answering questions about local college opportunities to JHS students.

“I think it is good to have a College Consortium so that we, as students, can learn about the different possibilities available to us,” said JHS Senior Luis Castro, who is planning to study criminal justice with a career in law enforcement at SUNY Buffalo, University at Buffalo, or SUNY Fredonia. “Even if a school doesn’t have your exact major, they may have something that will fit your future career path. This just gives us an opportunity to ask questions and get more information right at JHS.”

Colleges in attendance were:  Alfred State College, Alfred University, Bryant & Stratton College, Buffalo State College, Canisius College, Daemen College, D’Youville College, Erie Community College, Fredonia State College, Hilbert College, Medaille College, Niagara Community College, Niagara University, St. Bonaventure University, Trocaire College, University at Buffalo and Villa Maria College.

“It is important to introduce students, who haven’t started the college application process yet, to all the potential local opportunities to attend college,” said LeAnn Love, coordinator of the JHS College & Career Center. “We encourage students and their families to start the college application process early and contact me with any questions, or help, they might need.”

More information on colleges, the application process, and scholarships is available at www.jamestownpublicschools.org on Jamestown High Schools’ page under Resources/JHS College & Career Center or call Mrs. Love at 483-7122.
