Seniors have been busy filling out college applications for their lives after high school. Some students fill out multiple applications in case they are denied their number one choice.

Many seniors have gotten letters back that read “Congratulations, you have been accepted!” That’s when the excitement begins. A few seniors mentioned include:

Hannah Terry- Grand Canyon University, Phoenix, Arizona
Taylor Shaindlin- University of Oregon, Eugene, Oregon
Lindsey Maedl- Eastern Washington University, Cheney, Washington
Cherno Sowe- Western Oregon University (Football Scholarship) Monmouth, Oregon
Megan Kunze -Boise State University, Boise, Idaho; Eastern Washington University, Spokane, Washington
Jaren Jacobs- George Fox University (8,000 dollar scholarship) Newburg, Oregon
Miranda Hall- Washington State University, Pullman, Washington
Maddy Bennett- Western Washington University, Bellingham, Washington
Zach Hall- West Point Military Academy, New York, New York
Alexis Long- Portland State University, Portland, Oregon
Samantha Sam- Oregon State University, Corvallis, Oregon

These students studied very hard to gain acceptance from these schools. Jacobs received an 8,000 dollar scholarship to George Fox University. Jacobs wanted to attend this college because they have an excellent engineering program. Jacobs says, “I wanted to go to GFU because they had a really cool engineering program for freshmen. You get to make a pneumatic engine out of aluminum and have competitions to see whose is the fastest.”

Many students have had to settle for their alternative choices in college, but sometimes these schools are the best choice. Terry says, “Grand Canyon wasn’t my first choice, but when I learned more about the school, and found out they were going to give me scholarships in the field I want to study, I knew I needed to go there.”

The few students mentioned out of many who have received acceptance letters are very excited to become college students and receive college educations for their ideal careers.
