A Glance Into the Future: National College Decision Day


It seems like just yesterday, seniors were beginning the college application process and roaming around the campuses of prospective schools to determine the best fit for the next four years of their lives. However, on May 1, their final college decisions were made and the seniors took their first steps on the road to their futures.

Multiple schools came to Lodi High School on April 28 to answer questions and speak to our students. The schools that came in were Fairleigh Dickinson University, New Jersey Institute of Technology, Montclair State University, New Jersey City University, Rutgers University, Bloomfield College, and William Paterson University. The representatives from these amazing institutes answered many questions about the individual schools regarding dorm and campus life, internship opportunities, and even about the dining hall food! Choosing a college is one of the toughest decisions that a high school student must make, but there is no better feeling than knowing that you will be attending the college of your dreams. The obstacles that the seniors had to jump over and the constant stress they had to overcome was definitely worth this moment. Here, at The Lodi Rampage, we send our congratulations and good luck to all seniors in their future endeavors!
